Acne and tooth decay

How did ancient peoples deal with acne and tooth decay? Why does it seem like modern technology is less effective at treating acne, compared to tribal technology? In the pic these men have near perfect skin.

They didn't give a shit, they had more serious concerns.
tooth decay
South American Indians used tree natural rubber like chewing gum, others just used chew stick to cleat their teeth. If a tooth got too bad they just removed it. It was a huge concern before modern dentistry, by the time you got like 70 you probably have lost most of your teeth.

Even a few years ago oral care was terrible. Here is what happened to Louis the XIV:

In the autumn of 1685, Louis developed an agonising and persistent toothache, and his doctors decided to extract the offending molar. However, they were ignorant of the importance of post-operative hygiene, and infection set in: the king’s gums, jawbone and sinuses became dangerously inflamed. A committee of nervous physicians concluded that drastic measures were called for.
Louis underwent a truly terrible ordeal: they removed all the teeth from the top layer of his mouth, then punctured his palate and broke his jaw. This was all completed without anaesthetic, the king being fully awake throughout this procedure. The most powerful man in Western Europe was helpless before the primitive medical knowledge of his time. At least the wounds were kept clean on this occasion – cauterised with red-hot coals.

Their diet had alot less sugar so they didn't really get much acne or tooth decay unless they were rich and could afford sugar.

Ancient Egyptians had a huge problem with tooth decay because the flour they used to make their bread usually had some sand in it which quickly eroded their enamel. Also eating large amounts of high starch foods like grains is in itself pretty bad for your teeth, and their diets were largely based on bread.

Acne is caused by a bacteria that lives in your skin. It didn't spread much in ancient times.

Ancient people ate very little sugar, and when they did eat sugar it was from fruits and not massively refined white grass-paste.

Wow, that's a real credible site you've got there. And they've even got an article telling me how I can use a hunk of salt to emit negative ions in order to protect me from getting cancer from the microwaves generated by my WiFi and cellphone:

I was hoping they'd also have advice on aligning my chakras to protect me from hemorrhoids, but alas.

Sugar is not actually a major factor in tooth decay. Tooth decay was definitely a major issue.

@Need_TLC
Your argument contradicts itself. If their diet was so harsh, then the sample would be like medieval populations which had less prevalence of dental carries then modern times. Having a diet high in roughage grinding away unhelpful bacteria is inconductive to the formation of caries which require the adhesion of food to the dental surface.

Acne and tooth decay are both caused 100% by diet. Ancient people didnt eat sugary garbage so they didnt get either. Both problems are totally non existant before agriculture and rare until modern times.

Acne wouldn't have mattered, but tooth decay would have been a death sentence in prehistoric times. People would have died from it as they could not eat.

My mum always used to say the same thing when I was a kid and we were watching period dramas together "Ha ha you know in the past they would have had all their teeth rotting out because they didn't brush their teeth. But modern actors all have perfect teeth".

But thinking back this can't be accurate. How do primates teeth not rot out? They don't brush their teeth.

And if people in the past all had rotten teeth how did they eat?

I remember reading a book about the Middle Ages in Europe saying that they used narcotics as anesthesia. I guess they had anesthesia then; it was just very dangerous to use it.

Animals teeth decay just as badly as for humans. Ever had very old dogs or cats? They get all kind of dental problems and lose teeth constantly if not treated. The same happens to wild animals but they tend to starve to death when they can't chew properly.

TreeEater

@Boy_vs_Girl

You are forgetting people used to live in general shorter lives back in the day. With war, famine, diseases and general lack of medical treatment very few lived up to the age when tooth decay became a thing. Further more, todays food is significantly chunkier and more hard to bite off, porages, soups and mashed foods were far more common. The lack of easily assessable sweets further improved the chances of tooth decay setting later in life.

i've seen lots of asian and white people who are complete pizza faces, I've also seen black people with acne but IN GENERAL most black people have nice skin

I guess I can understand the vanity of having clear skin but, how did people in the past have such perfect skin? Genetics? Did they put on special oils? Even today in third world country you see photos of tribesmen with perfect complexion. Me on the other hand am 36 with deeply pitted face and still get zits from time to time, not fair senpai.

I read that in ayurvedic, they would swish oil in the mouth to pull bacteria out of teeth and gums and science today says it works by creating too slippery of a surface for plaque to stick to.

How can you be this dumb. You need to learn a thing or two about food and two things or three about acne.

TurtleCat

@New_Cliche
Short answer is that they didn't. Access to fatty and sugery foods weren't availible to anything resembling modern times and as such decreased the occurence of tooth decay and acne. However tooth decay was still a serious chronic societal problem in the past. IIRC the ancient, way back, egyptian method of working wheat etc resulted in small stone fragments inside the finished product which lead to universal teeth problems.
The most famous danish king was nicknamed Blåtand (Blacktooth, allthough literally Bluetooth) due to having a prominent rotten tooth and one of the more famous english queens had a whole mouth full of them.
Suffice to say that there's a reason that the stereotype of elderly people being toothless exists.

Chew sticks were and sometimes still are commonly used in Africa for dental hygiene. In Africa, they are typically made from twigs of Salvadora Persica.

They were eating diets that didn't lead to acne and tooth decay like the ones today. They ate more of what would be considered a 'paleo diet'. High fat, low carbs, minimal sugar, minimal grains, no over processed foods, and a larger intake of fermented foods made for a healthier diet compared to average one of today. They had to struggle to eat where now our bounty of food supply is rather decadent and sadly leads some to poor diet choices, likely because of the sheer simplicity in obtaining food today.
