Description: Burma image, WA0609. Shan girl (H&S).
'Shans generally have good teeth, though they are often very black from the constant chewing of betel-nut. They think that toothache is caused by a worm that eats away the teeth. Cloves rubbed on the gum is the usual remedy for an aching tooth. Other cures are to chew the leaves of the lime tree and wash the mouth in which the leaves of the guava tree have been boiled' ['Shans at Home', L. Milne, London, 1910, pp.182-183]
