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; this item was donated by Dr. James Joyce from Arthur, Ontario; these instruments are possibly based on a design by Dr. Harold Keith Box (1890-1956); Dr. Box was born in Carleton Place, Ontario; he became internationally well-known in the 1920s, creating a stir when he discovered the cause of pyorrhea, a common tooth disease where the gums were inflamed, causing teeth to be loosened; he discovered the disease began in the lining of the tooth socket, between the bone and the tooth, as opposed to beginning by tartar or in another part of the body; he also proved that a tooth in which the pulp and the dentine were diseased could be saved, instead of extracted, as long as the cementum, the bone covering the dentine within the root, was healthy; he spent his career doing research at the University of Toronto and never wished for financial gain or fame, though at the time his discoveries were seen as comparable to Banting and Best's discovery of insulin, which happened only a few years prior at the same university

C. Foote, a 1924 University of Toronto graduate who practised in Victoria; this item punched holes in rubber dental dams, used to protect the tooth and operating field from moisture; an S. S. White catalogue states the instrument's popularity was growing due to its ability to cut the smoothest, cleanest hole; the 1914 catalogue states that the instrument was patented in 1898 but as of 1914 only had four holes, instead of five, as this model does

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; gold is still used by some dentists, despite it being more costly and more difficult to work with than amalgams or composites; gold was first used to fill cavities around 1500 C.E. in early modern Italy; while gold is a very soft metal, it becomes harder when compressed, and pieces weld together in the mouth; it requires twice as much force as amalgam does to be compressed, however, and there is a danger of hurting the tooth being filled
