FIRST EDITION. Delabarre, in his work on Seconde Dentition (1819) devoted considerable space to the subject of orthodontics. “To the writings of Delabarre we are probably more greatly indebted than to any of his contemporaries; while many of his ideas were wrong, a great many were correct" (B.W. Weinberger, Orthodontics, St. Louis, 1926, I, pp. 183-84).
Delabarre, the dentist of Louis XVIII, taught dentistry in the civil hospitals of Paris. He was a pioneer of the use of porcelain teeth and one of the first promoters of oral hygiene.
