year before , while lie was studying at Hip-
ley , 0. , the Baltimore College of Dental
Surgery the first dental college In the
world was organized. The first society In
thu country was organized that year. It
was the American Society of Dental Sur-
geoni. The first journal devoted to odont
elegy as a specialty was started the year pre
vious , namely , the American Journal of
Dental Science , at Baltimore.

sixty dental colleges established since then ,
fifty-five of the colleges being embraced
within the Association of Dental Faculties ,
and with only two or three exceptions evcrj

there being about 100 local city and district
societies. The national association was or
iginally organized at Niagara Falls , where
It Is to meet again next year under the
new name adopted a year ago. It came
Into being as the American Dental associa
tion In 1S59.
"When I first started In to practice , "
said Dr. Taft , while some routine matters
were being disposed of at the convention ,
"the methods were rather crude , but then
as now the effort was generally In the
direction of saving , of preserving the teeth.
The materials used for the filling of teeth
were confined to cold , tin and silver
amalgam. Plates on cold were In use. but
only within the last twenty-five ycars "na\e
metallic brldees demonstrated their utility.
Porcelain crowns with wood s'lvots were
used on tie roots of the teeth , though
porcelain teeth themselves were not gen-
oral. Old bone and Ivory were the ma
terial out of which artificial cu ° rltls , bi
cuspids , canines. Incisors and molars were
made for the sufferers of that day who
had to died their teeth to save their
nerves , and even natural teeth , that Is ,

began the manufacture of artificial teeth
of porcelain In 1S30. A more perfect tooth
by far was made by Jones , White & Mc-
Curdy of Philadelphia In 1840. Still the
porcelain tooth was moro or less In Its
experimental stage , and would bo a curi
osity compared with some of the perfect
counterfeits of nature now produced , In
which the shape , coloring and even the
material make them so like the natural
Ivory that they can hardly he distinguished
"Hut the procress made has been mainly
In the study of the principles underlying
the whole practice of dentistry to put It
on n more scientific basis. Much of this
progress has been In the therapeutic line.
Dentists have kept pace with the patho
logical and bacteriological achievements of
science , Just as well as the members of
th medical profession. Bacteriology Is ex
plaining many thin us that before werr
puzzling to the dental surgeon and you
must recognize that dentistry Is a branch
of surccry fully as important as any , more
so than many others , because the con
dition of the whole physical system de
pends upon the condition of the teeth , which
explains why army surgeons are so strict
In their examination of the teeth of re
cruits. U Is found that carles can easily
ho traced to a bacterial origin , the micro
organisms catinc Into the teeth , and then
by their secretions causing general dis
solution of the lime salts composing tin
tooth until It Is all decayed away. The
main effort , however , of the profession Is
In the therapeutic direction , and more at
tention Is being paid to hygiene than ever ,
which Is as It should be. To keep the
teeth clean Is the surest preventive of de
cay , as It has ever been. To this end the
modern antistatic Is working wonders , ef
fectually destroying the bacteria.

"A sort of beto nolr of the profession Just
at present seems to be what Is called pyor-
rhea. This is a term which may mean al
most anything , the way It Is used. What
It really means Is a now of pus. To make
It strictly definite It means a flow of pus
around the tooth from nhcro U protrudes
from the gum to Its roots. The gum wastes
away nml the teeth In that part of the gum
affected become loose. Antiseptic thera
peutics ore believed to bo the best means
of arresting'this tendency.

teeth , but as early as 150 years ago John
Hunter , the well known specialist , author
and experimentalist of London , England ,
transplanted human teeth Into the combs of
cocks , and they adhered as firmly as though
they hod grown there Just as firmly as
your teeth are In your gums. Specimens of
this are now to be seen In the British mu
seum. The transplanting of teeth does not
lack for demonstrablllty , but the trouble Is
that so many things liavo to be taken Into
consideration and such nice particularity of
care hns to bo exercised that it Is almost
Impracticable. In the first place the patient
must be susceptible to adhesion ; next , the
person from whom the tooth Is taken must
be of a healthy constitution , as you cer
tainly would not want to run the chances of
'ecotnlng Infected with some disgusting
disease. This combination so desirable It Is
hard to flnd. "

Dr. J. N. Grouse , Uio chairman of the
executive committee of the national associa
tion and editor of the Dental Digest of
Chicago , when asked what Is one of the
atest things In his profession , observed that
it 13 now being considered vulgar to display
much gold In the teeth. For this reason
bands made of platinum are now being cov-
nd with porcelain. One of these ho wears
'ilmsclf. ' The porcelain will fuse with the
platinum , but not with the gold The the
ory that tobacco Is beneficial Iho teeth
s suppo-tcd by Dr. Crouso and ho does not
chew the weed either.
That which held the Interest of the na-
.tonal association more than any other one
thing was the theory demonstrated by Dr.
C. S. Case of Chicago of the correction of
deformities of the teeth and jaws by a rae-
. -hanlcal application of pressure. This comes
under the branch of orthodontla. lie ac
knowledges his Indebtedness In this particu
lar line to Dr. Edward II. Angel , especially
taking advantage of the almost unlimited
opportunities presented In Dr. Angel's sys
tem for bullldng a regulating apparatus upon
bands cemented to tbo teeth. He has made
a specialty of this line of experimentation
with the result that be was able to show
that many a protruding tooth had been
pressed back Into place and many a femi
nine mouth made again Inviting to oscula-
tory delights. Dr. Case's methods are purely
mechanical , of course , and all the appli
ances necessary for the determining of the

gcnlous mechanical powers and perfect man-
Icular skill He Is having something of an
up-hill fight , though to gain reasonable au
dience for his Ideas , as Is Indicated by the
following moralizing from his latest con
tribution to the literature of dental science :
"When our methods or teaching In this
department become as perfectly developed
as Is In other branches of dentistry , when a
thorough Knowledge of the slmpJe laws of
mechanics Is Insisted upon as one of the
preliminary college requirements , and every
branch of dentistry that Is dependent upon
mechanical and manipulative skill Is taught
scientifically as In all other profesalons and
trades that are dependent more or less upon
a practical knowledge of the principles of
force , then , and perhaps not until then , with
the coming generation of dentists , will orth-
odontla take Its proper place In dentistry , " Tvrth StrnlKliti'iirtl.
The underlying principles , without tiring
the reader with all the minute details , are
given by Dr. Case In his own words as fol
lows. In summing up the philosophy of his
method :
"Teeth that are moved by orthopedic pro
cesses from one relative position to another
are for a considerable time often for years
surrounded by physical forces that tend
to pull or push them back to the Irregular
position they formerly occupied. These
forces continue to operate until the tissues
are brought to equilibrium In their changed
positions by the physiological processes of
nature. To most successfully aid nature In
th upbuilding of sustaining elements and
structures , the moved and loosened teeth
should bo held absolutely still during the
entire period that Is required for their per
manent retention. The retaining appliance
should be one that so flrmly grasps the
teeth that the aforesaid forces are not only
completely held at bay , but th slight move
ments occasioned by mastication and other
wise ore prevented. It should be one , more
over , that frequent removals for cleanslugs ,
etc. , will be unnecessary and Impossible. It
should therefore bo as perfectly fitted , fin
ished and cemented as a bridge denture ,
and so constructed that the teeth and gums
can bo kept In a healthy condition while It
is worn with the same comfort and uncon
sciousness that a filling or crown produces. "
In an up-to-date exhibit of artificial teeth ,
such as was at the Crelghton .Medlral col
lege during the progress of the convention ,
there Is much of interest. The fine coloring
