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.
These instruments are reproductions of actual Roman medical instruments buried in Pompeii on August 24, 79 A.D. by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. These replicas were produced by using casts of the original instruments and consist of a bronze alloy finished with paint to simulate the appearance of bronzes from the time.
The set includes five medical instruments with a variety of purposes. The forceps, or bone forceps, were mainly used to extract fractured bone fragments from the body. The shears, or medical scissors, had many applications, but research suggests that they were used less for cutting tissue, and more for cutting hair, which was widely seen as a medical or therapeutic procedure. The chisel, or osteotome, was mainly used to cut bone but may have also been used as a scalpel. The elevator, or bone lever, was used to move fractured bones into position, or possibly also used to remove teeth. The cautery had a variety of uses in ancient medicine, but was most commonly used as haemostatic to stop bleeding (cauterization).
