Specialists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) have discovered from bone remains the oldest dental treatment in the Americas dated around 647-768 AD.

“We are not talking about mutilation or deformation, like in the Mayan or Egyptian culture, but rather a complex procedure that required specialized dental knowledge,” said Avto Gogichaishvili and Juan Morales, who are responsible for the university’s National Service of Archeomagnetism.

The UNAM experts said with this discovery, Mesoamerica has become the spearhead in dental treatment in the world, Xinhua reported.
