The 19th century marked a period of unprecedented discovery in dentistry. Innovations such as dental fillings and anesthesia transformed patient care, while the establishment of the first dental school by Horace Hayden and Chapin Harris propelled dentistry into the realm of academia. Breakthroughs like porcelain inlays and mechanized drills further revolutionized dental procedures, enhancing patient comfort and outcomes.
