Bunon, [Robert] (1702-48). Essay sur les maladies des dents, . . . 12mo. xii, 237 [3]pp. Paris: Briasson; Chaubert; De Hansy, 1743. 168 x 96 mm. Mottled calf c. 1743, gilt spine. Very lightly browned, occasional minor foxing, but a fine copy. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 3672.1 "One of the outstanding French dentists in the period following Fauchard's Chirurgien dentiste (1728) was Robert Bunon, who was the first to perform specialized odontological research. Dissatisfied with the incomplete coverage of dental problems that he found in the works of Fauchard and Gerauldy, Bunon addressed such issues as dental erosion, tooth development and the prophylaxis of dental caries and other maladies of the teeth in his Essay, the first of his important dental works. Three years later he published Expériences et demonstrations . . . pour servir de soute et de preuves à l'Essai . . . , in which he proved the assertions of his earlier Essay through a series of dental researches conducted on patients at the Salpêtrière and at the hospital of St. Côme-the first such ever performed. In this work he discussed for the first time the genesis of enamel hypoplasia (which he found was caused by various childhood diseases), as well as the prevention of tooth decay; he also included in it the first dental pharmacopeia.
