Excerpt from The International Dental Journal, 1900, Vol. 21: A Monthly Periodical Devoted to Dental and Oral Science Mr. F. J. Bennett, l.d.s. (eng), in a paper entitled The Ending and Mending of Caries, suggests that the old maxim, which ays, What can't be ended must be mended, represents the point of view from which a large majority of dentists regard the subject of dental caries. They cannot end the advent of caries, therefore they devote all their energies to mending its destructive effects. He further suggests that the success in mending has tended to lessen the desire to end, or, rather, in the sense in which he uses this word, to prevent that which makes mending necessary. Had there been less resource in the mending; had the case admitted of no half-measures; had the dangers of caries been more deadly, more widespread attention and an unremitting efl'ort to the discovery of a prevention and ending of caries would have been made. He re viewed the efl'orts made to discover the cause of caries which have led up to the present accepted theories, and, reasoning from the suc cess attending preventative measures in lessening other germ-caused diseases, urged that there was in this suficient encouragement to stimulate effort to find some practical means of lessening if not end ing the necessity of mending dental caries.'
