Excerpt from The Dental Digest, Vol. 4: A Monthly Summary of Dental Science Devoted to the Progress of Dentistry; January-December, 1898 A dentist needs some means of indicating precisely the forms of the instruments used in the operations he endeavors to describe, and especially is this badly needed in schoolwork. So long as the teacher has no means of accurately designating the particular instrument he employs, so long will his manipulative teaching be vague and uncertain. The pupil will be unable to know just what is meant, and any description of the manner of using individual instruments will be confusing and without force. Not only this, but the confusion gives rise to an unnecessarily great multiplicity of instrument forms. We being unable to teach manipulation, the student fails to learn the range of valuable instrument forms, and the powers and capabilities of instruments, and is therefore continually seeking new forms, hoping to find that which will serve him better. This being done without accurate appreciation of mechanical laws, the vast majority of efforts are fail ures, which tend only to further confuse the manufacturer's numbers.
