In 2014, the Institute of Archeology of the Russian Academy of Sciences conducted a comprehensive archaeological survey of the extraordinary necropolis of the Moscow Theological Academy. Before the First World War in this cemetery were buried teachers, professors and eminent students of this prestigious educational institution.
Multiple pathological conditions, as well as special cases of the treatment have been observed in the assessment of the state of dentition. A clear sign of a medical intervention has a rather rare phenomenon for archaeological artifacts. As a therapeutic method of treatment of caries dentists have used a variety of filling materials. There were cases of use of dental phosphate cement and amalgam. On the materials presented as the newest (at the time) technique of treatment is amputation of the pulp with the imposition of antiseptic dressings, and the cases of prosthetics. Various dentoalveolar anomalies, methods and techniques of dental treatment and prosthetics that have been discovered, lead us into the area of the history of medicine. Thus paleodontology source is seen as a chronological marker. Objects dated to the late 19th century (up to 1892) have no trace of the intervention of a dentist. So the burials of individuals with traces of treatment (fillings, dentures, etc.) probably date to the early 20th century. Among them are the operations that can be applied only after the 20-ies of the 20th century.
