The Surprising Origin of Teeth! Dental research discovery!
Origin of teeth, Compagopiscis
Teeth are an integral part of our smile, but have you ever wondered how come we have teeth in the first place? All living vertebrates with jaws have teeth of some kind and it has been thought for a long time that our very firsts jawed vertebrate ancestors didn’t have teeth, capturing their prey with scissor-like jaw-bones. The origin of teeth has been widely discussed by paleontologists.
As it turns out, the paleontologist from University of Bristol published an exciting new research about their study of primitive fish, specially the one called Compagopiscis. They used high energy x-rays at the Swiss Light Source in Switzerland and managed to reveal the composition and structure development of its teeth and bones.
They were able to visualize every tissue, cell and growth line within the bone jaws. Then, they made comparisons with the embryology stages of other living vertebrates, allowing them to discover that the placoderms fishes like Compagopiscis actually possessed teeth. This could completely change the previously held theories and push the existence of teeth much more further back. This has taken longer than expected as research had been held back waiting for non-destructive technology so they could still preserve the original fossils.
The device used for this analysis was a much powerful version than your usual dental x-ray machine. We, at our dental clinic in Cancun, have a digital x-ray machine that helps us to quickly identify any problems to fix your teeth. These are the same quality of machines and devices you would find with dentists in USA and Canada. When people send us their x-rays or CT scans our doctors analyze it and will give you a direct and personal response explaining to you your options and giving you suggestions on how can we help you. This is a completely free evaluation.
By having your dental work done with us you might save up to 70% and still have enough to enjoy a wonderful vacation on white sand beaches of Cancun. If you are interested on our dental implants services, you can call toll free from USA & Canada at 1-800-701-6039.
