"Sodium perborate " Wikipedia
Research Facts
Sodium perborate is a white, odorless, water soluable chemical compound used as a source of active oxygen in some tooth bleaching formulas. Used as a bleaching agent for internal bleaching of a non vital root treated tooth and bleach the stains from the inside out. It has antiseptic properties and can act as a disinfectant. A less aggressive bleach than sodium hypochlorite. Can be used in powder form as toothpowder or as mouthwash when used as a solution.

Research Facts
Liquified phenol is made from liquified carbolic acid by the addition of 10% water, is poisonous and its anesthetic qualities will numb rather than burn skin. Phenol (C6H5OH) has a distinct odour that is sickenly sweet and tarry. A colourless liquid when pure, otherwise pink or red. Commercial phenol is a liquid that evaporates more slowly than water. Pharmacy bottles were designed with built in hazardous warnings by adding raised vertical grooves, or embossed stars when the contents were poisonous. The tactile reminder eliminated possible improper use, especially in poor lighting for the customer. Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008.

Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; True Dentalloy was S. S. White's dental alloy for use in making amalgam fillings, and it consisted of a high percentage of silver (around 70%) and a mix of tin, copper and zinc; amalgams were first used in France in the early 19th century, and involved amalgamating metals with mercury; the modern 'recipe' was perfected by Dr. G. V. Black in the 1890s in Chicago, and S. S. White used his method to create their Dentalloy; in their catalogue they state their alloy is perfectly balanced, meaning the expansion of one metal is balanced by the contraction of another, and tempered, meaning it is aged so that the metals will remain stable
