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
