Abstract
MILITARY DENTISTRY IN ANCIENT ROME: 27 B.C.-A.D. 476

Valentine J. Belfiglio*

ABSTRACT

Vegetius writes that military leaders selected only the healthiest, strongest citizens for service.1 To maintain physical fitness legionnaires exercised, trained and consumed adequate quantities of healthy foods. Dental injuries and diseases interfered with the intake of proper nourishment. Roman commanders understood the importance of dental care to the overall well-being of a fighting soldier. Medical inspections and treatment including dental care allowed soldiers with medical problems to return to the battlefield as soon as possible. Medical and dental treatment acted as a force multiplier to give the Roman army an advantage in war.

Keywords: Caries, periodontitis, prostheses, dental injuries.
