Equine Dentistry Existed 3000 Years Back – New Study

Horses had dentists more than 3000 years ago in Monoglia.

More than 3000 years in Mongolia , when a horse had tooth pain the herder would chop off the crown thereby relieving pain – such is the evidence found by  William Taylor, an archaeologist at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany. he first came across the strange sawn tooth in the collections of the National Museum of Mongolia in Ulaanbaatar. According to the study, the findings are significant because it counteracts previous theories that veterinary care was a “western science” developed by civilizations in China or the Mediterranean — but instead by nomadic people centuries earlier. Horses drove civilizations and are considered responsible for today’s globalization to a large extant . Relief from tooth pain rather helped in this process to some extant.
