TIDBITS® CONSIDERS by Janet Spencer

Blood is 83% water, and bones are 25% water. Tooth enamel, the hardest substance in the human body, is only 2% water. Come along with Tidbits as we take a look at teeth! FAST FACTS • The most widespread human disease is tooth decay, affecting 98% of Americans.

Grand Forks Grand Cities Mall (701) 775-JACK

• There are over 100,000 dentists in the U.S., and they see a million patients every day. • Every day, dentists put 80 lbs. (36 kg) of gold in American mouths and fill 1/2 million cavities. 75 tons of gold are used each year for filling people’s teeth, and about 5% of all gold mined is used in dentistry.

www.itworksrepair.com

• Sugar does not cause tooth decay. Bacteria feeding on the sugar that remains in the mouth too long is what causes tooth decay. There are between 50 and 100 million bacteria in the average human mouth.

A Lightweight Vacuum Even a 6-Year Old Can Handle

• In some countries, most people eat so little sugar that entire cities are cavity-free.

“Lynn”

• The enamel on a human tooth is only 1/1,000th of an inch thick.

• For every 100 inductees into the U.S. Army, more than 600 cavities have to be filled; 112 teeth have to be pulled; and 40 bridges, 21 crowns, 18 partial dentures, and one full denture have to be installed.

DENTAL HISTORY • Archeologists found the remains of an Egyptian man whose perfectly preserved gold bridgework, installed 4,500 years ago, is the oldest known example of restorative dentistry. • The first electric dental drill was patented in 1875. Prior to that, dental drills had been powered by foot treadles. Before foot treadles, cavities were treated by putting a drop of “vitriol” in them. Vitriol is now known as sulfuric acid, and it killed the nerves in the tooth. • In the 1800s false teeth were made from wood or ivory, but they didn’t last long. A revolutionary dentist named Parmly found that when real teeth were used to replace missing teeth, they worked much better. The trouble was where to find real teeth. The war of 1812 was raging at the time, so Parmly solved the problem by visiting the site of the Battle of Bridgewater shortly after the battle ended. With his brother to assist him, he collected thousands of teeth from fallen soldiers. He used them to fashion dentures guaranteed to last a lifetime. • The Florence Manufacturing Company of Massachusetts was one of the first companies to produce toothbrushes in America in 1885. • The natural bristles of early toothbrushes were taken from the necks and shoulders of swine, especially pigs living in colder climates like Siberia and China. The first nylon bristles were introduced in 1938.

GEORGE WASHINGTON’S TEETH • George Washington, who lost all of his teeth at an early age, actually had several sets of false teeth. None were made of wood, which is a popular misconception. Two of them were made of hippopotamus ivory and gold, fashioned by Dr. John Greenwood, who was one of the most prominent dentists of the day. They had springs in them which pressed them firmly against the top and bottom of his mouth. Washington had to actively close his mouth to keep his teeth together. One of the denture sets is on display at the Samuel Harris National Museum of Dentistry in Baltimore. The other set was donated to the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, which is the oldest dental college in the world. They in turn loaned the dentures to the Smithsonian Institute in 1976 for display at the bicentennial exhibit. They were stolen from the Smithsonian on June 19, 1981, probably for their gold content. The owner of the Carnegie Deli in New York offered a reward of a year’s worth of delicatessen food for their safe return, no questions asked. However, the dentures have never been recovered.

FAST FACTS • In 1733, dentures gave rise to an important legal test case. John Zenger, editor of the New York Weekly Journal, said about Governor William Cosby that he had loathsome false teeth and an unclean mouth. The governor sued for libel. Zenger’s lawyer maintained the comments were not libelous unless it could be proven that the comments were wrong. The jury must have agreed that the governor had loathsome false teeth, because they found Zenger not guilty. • Clark Gable had no teeth, but wore dentures. “Gone With the Wind” co-star Vivian Leigh complained that he had terrible breath.

TOOTH FAIRY MUSEUM • When in Deerfield, Illinois, visit the Tooth Fairy Museum to see a Tooth Fairy treasure trove including Tooth Fairies made out of everything from paper mache to clay to fabric. There are tooth fairy angels, pixies, ballerinas, and even a Tooth Fairy bag lady. Of course there are a lot of Tooth Fairy boxes designed for children to put their teeth into in order to receive their money. One is shaped like a set of pink gums and is designed so that each tooth lost is placed in the appropriate slot, reproducing the child’s smile. • Collecting money for lost teeth is an American habit which became popular around 1900. At that time the going rate per tooth was about 12 cents. Now, it’s at least a dollar per tooth lost. YOU BE THE JUDGE • A dental hygienist who happened to be a bornagain Christian found that when she had people in the dental chair it was a perfect time to save their souls. Patients resented this; the dentist she worked for forbad it; but she continued the practice anyway. She was fired. She sued, saying she’d only been exercising her right to free speech. If you were the judge, how would you rule? The judge disagreed with the hygienist and supported her dismissal because, “a dentist has the right to expect his hygienist... not to add more discomfort to a patient’s already uncomfortable situation.” ALFRED E. NEUMAN • An ad for a dental clinic in Topeka, Kansas in the 1920’s featured a grinning boy with red hair, freckles and a missing front tooth. The boy was not worried a bit, because his dentist was Painless Romine. The picture of the grinning boy also appeared in ads for shoes and soft drinks. In the 1950’s the boy was adopted by Mad Magazine, and named Alfred E. Neuman. His slogan became, “What, me worry?” In 1956 he was even featured as a write-in candidate for president, but lost.

PATSY SHERMAN

When Patsy Sherman was in high school, she took an aptitude test to see what kind of career she would be good at. In 1947, boys and girls took separate tests. Her test showed that a good career for her would be as a housewife. Patsy did NOT want to be a housewife. So she insisted that they let her take the aptitude test for boys. This version said she would be good at dentistry or chemistry. She liked those ideas better. • In college she studied math and chemistry, with only a few other women in her classes. After graduating in 1952, she got a part time temp job with 3M in Minnesota as a chemist. She intended to work for 3M just until she had enough money to attend medical school. Instead, she stayed in her “temp” job until 1992 largely due to a “fortuitous” accident. • The project she was assigned to work on was to develop a sturdy synthetic rubber that would stand up to regular contact with jet fuels, which caused the existing rubber hoses to disintegrate. One day a small bottle of a synthetic latex compound fell to the floor, shattering and splattering an assistant’s tennis shoes with a milky substance similar to sap. They tried to wipe it off the shoe.

Soap, water, alcohol, and other solvents were tried but they all just rolled off. The compound didn’t change the look or feel of the canvas shoe, and as the days passed, the shoe became dirtier and dirtier– except for the spots where the chemical had landed, which remained white and clean. This bore more investigation. • Dipping some fabric in the compound, Patsy and her research partner Sam Smith found that it repelled both oil and water, and would allow nothing to penetrate the fabric. The chemical surrounded each fiber in the fabric with an invisible fluorochemical shield which was impervious to water, oils, and dirt.

PATSY SHERMAN (continued): • Permanent press fabrics were just being introduced, but stains tended to be permanent in permanent press. Something that protected fabric from being stained would be very valuable. This particular formula was too gummy to use on fabrics, so Patsy was hired full time to work with Sam to develop a version that was thinner. It took them three years to come up with the product dubbed Scotchgard, and both Pasty’s and Sam’s name appear on the patent. • Once they had the formula, the company needed to figure out how to manufacture and package it. (Patsy could not enter the textile mills where her products were being tested because no women were allowed.) Scotchgard was put on the market in 1956. Shortly after it was introduced, the manager of the manufacturing plant informed 3M that there was “a year’s supply” of Scotchgard ready to go. Within a few days, the entire stock was sold. Scotchgard became one of their most profitable products and funded 3M’s development into a global industry.

• A rubbery molecule of Scotchgard is made of fluorine, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. One side of the molecule is sticky, causing it to cling to fabrics, and the other end is slippery, making it repel stains. Not only does it keep fabrics clean, but it also makes them more durable. Eventually around 100 different products were developed. • Patsy and her partner Sam Smith patented over a dozen other inventions, including an “optical brightener” which gives detergent companies the right to say that their product makes clothes “whiter than white.” Patsy eventually became manager of Technical Development and retired from 3M in 1992. She served on the board of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Minnesota Inventors Hall of Fame in 1983. She died in 2008.

This law was unused and nearly forgotten for centuries. Then, in 1817, a man named Abraham Thornton was charged with murder in the death of a young woman named Mary Ashford. The evidence against Thornton was nearly overwhelming, but he claimed the right to trial by battle against his accuser. Since the law was still on the books, the court decided it had no choice but to grant his request. Thornton’s accuser was William Ashford, the victim’s brother, but
