La médecine bucco-dentaire dans l'Egypte antique

Abstract : Ancient Egypt’s fascination with the contemporary world has been growing ever since the birth of the egyptology and the archaeological discoveries that accompany it. Indeed, this great civilization stands out for its exceptional lifespan and its ingenuity, its modern lifestyle and its surprisingly advanced scientific knowledge. Notably, the various medical fields all have their experts, rigorously trained to ensure the best possible cares. In oral medicine, as in other medical specialties, ancient Egyptians have tried to diagnose, treat and prevent diseases by associating their religious beliefs with their scientific and technical knowledge. The paleopathological analysis of the recovered skulls and the examination of the papyrus allow us today to glimpse how the ancient Egyptians took care of their teeth.
