Excerpt from An Introductory Lecture Delivered Before the Third District Dental Association of the State of New York at Their First Meeting After Organization, January 12, 1869

I will mention two, out of several, methods of inserting pivot teeth, which should never have gone into disuse. First, the old style of pivot teeth, as made by myself, half silex, with a deeply threaded screw pivot hole, into which was screwed a strong straight-grained hickory pivot, with a gold wire passed through its centre. The hole in the roots being drilled, all its length of a size, was then enlarged at the upper end by means of a Spring-reamer. The drill and the pivot should be passed through the same hole in a wire plate; one end screwed into the crown, the other pressed into the root. To part them is impossible, without drilling. The other method, I would name, is this. Use the plate tooth, made of the old strong material, with two good pins, solder on a strong gold pivot, drill the root tapering, fill it with red cedar, pierce the centre, and drive the tooth home. In either of these ways skillfully done, the tooth will last on an average fifteen years, and give more satisfaction than any plate tooth ever can. For teeth inserted in this style we used to get five dollars each, and they were worth it. This practice has been superseded, it may be, for the profit of the dentist; but not for the people.
