Description

At the Annual Meeting of the British Dental Association in 1894 Oswald Fergus first demonstrated his invention, the Dental 'Phantom' for use by dental students and demonstrators. Fergus demonstrated the value to the student by noting that the teeth can be secured into the jaws and that "The introduction of roots, in place of teeth, allows crowning to be practised in almost any conceivable form, from which bridgework is but a short and easy step".

After he had presented the model at other meetings in London and Edinburgh, he offered C. Ash and Sons the phantom under certain conditions, which they accepted. These included that it be acknowledged as his, that his agreement be sought to any major changes, and that he would not gain financially from the invention.

Stands 19" high, 8" across the head.
