Archeologists Find Traces of the Oldest Denture in Krasnodar Territory

Archeologists working in the Krasnodar Territory have unearthed a jaw with the first-ever denture in the world.

      The remains of the person whose teeth were fixed by an ancient dentist date back to the 3rd millennium B.C. It was considered earlier that the mankind devised and learned to make artificial dental prostheses only in the Christian era.

      On one of ancient bones Ekaterina, a student of the Moscow State University has found traces of an artificial limb. These remains are nearly five thousand years old. These unique skull parts were found last season near Anapa. Now it is known that the remains belonged to a 30 year-old man.

      All signs show that he was from a rich and noble family, so he could afford dentures as the newest development of mankind. However, archeologists have not found the denture itself - a bronze or copper plate. Now doctors will be involved in the study of the remains.

      The find can probably overturn all the ideas about the historical development of world dentistry.
