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

Research Facts
It is too oily to be absorbed orally, therefore it requires intramuscular injection (also called dimercaprol injection). Used to treat arsenic, gold, lead, copper or mercury poisoning. It removes heavy metals from the blood, such as lead or mercury, and is excreted in urine. It is very allergenic (contains peanut).

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; Dr. Harold Keith Box (1890-1956) 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
