LEWIN MOSELY and SON'S improved ARTI- FICIAL TEETH are recommended by the most eminent of the medical profession as undeniably the best substitute for the natural organs, securing, without possibility of the slightest pain, the greatest amount of ease and comfort. They are the lightest, strongest, most economical, and durable that can be produced, and are securely retained in the mouth without springs, wires, or large and cumbersome plates. For efficacy, utility, speech,mastica- tion, and the restoration of the original youthful appearance of the features, they are unrivalled. Their resmblance to nature is so perfect as to frequently deceive the wearers themselves. Messrs. Mosely's speciality in the use of the gas enables them to guarantee a perfectly painless performance of all appertaining to dentistry with a speed, ease and comfort unobtainable by any other method, pain, unpleasantry, or danger being utterly impossible.—Dr. J. T. W. Thudichum, of the Pathological Laboratory, St. Thomas's Hospital, in the Times of the 16th of Aug' st, 1870, says It possesses all the advantages of chloroform to the exclusion of every disadvantage. It has no amell, and produces quickly, in four or five full inspirations, a perfect ancesthesia, in which all operations can be performed without causing pain, and hardly a. minute after the cessation of its inhalation its influence on the patient has entirely disappeared. It never produces unpleasant sensations, choking, or sickness, and there has ever been a case of danger under its influence."

No fee charged for extractions when the better des- cription of artificial teeth are required. Artificial Teeth from 5s. each Sets from Xb 5s.
