Étude de l'état de santé bucco-dentaire d'une série archéologique du 18e siècle à Nancy

Abstract : This work consists in a palaeo-odontological study aiming at establishing an oral health state of an archaeological series: a population of 117 soldiers of the 18th century exhumed, in a context of rescue excavation, on the site of "Cimetière des Trois Maisons" in Nancy. It is based on the analysis of various pathological odonto-stomatological factors and socio-cultural factors responsible for these pathologies. It is a macroscopic study grounds on dental factors : alveolysis, decay, wear, dental calculus, fractures, abnormalities and bone factors: alveolysis, tooth abscess, dental furcation measure. According to these criteria exposed in the results, the sanitary state of the material and its conservation is discussed. Furthermore, the oral health status is highlighted : a population of young adults with globally a lack of oral hygiene, dental decay involving infectious pathologies and a low level of alveolysis but a marked level of tooth wear. Finally the context of war, with the food and health impact, is taken into consideration. Likewise, some elements about dental care in the 18th century are interesting elements to think about.
