Old remedies for teeth;

A cement for stopping decayed teeth;
Dissolve one part mastic in two parts of collodion. Insert into the tooth on a small piece of cotton.

A simple powder for teeth;
Take 8oz fine levigated chalk and mix into an even powder by pouring on a few drops of peppermint oil at a time and rubbing until 2 dr. of oil has been introduced. Use with a soft toothbrush.

To preserve teeth;
Rub the teeth and gums two or three times a day with a hard brush dipped in flour of sulphur. This is an excellent preservative and has no unpleasant smell.

To whiten teeth;
Pour hot water on a few dry sage leaves and use as a lotion when cold. Rub the gums and teeth with sage.
