DAVID POVEY, removed from Hatton Garden near to Exeter-Exchange in the Strand, London, Operator for the Teeth, who had the Honour to clean her late, Majesty's Teeth; he sells a pleasant Dentrifice, being the same that King Charles II constantly used. It makes the Teeth as white as Ivory, and preserves them from decaying, destroying the Scarvy. He hath a Cephalick which certainly cures the Tooth-Art in a Minute's Time, beyond any person in England. If the Teeth are rotten, or uneven, and full of Holes or black Specks, he will make them smooth even sound, and white, so that no Person shall distinguish where the Defect has been. He sets in Artificial Teeth so easie, near, and firm, that they need not be removed for seven Years; and they may eat with them as well as with their former, and cannot be distinguished from their natural ones. He sells a pleasant Water, that prevents any Rottenness from seizing the Teeth, takes all Pains and Imposthumes, Cankers or Swellings out of the Gums, and fastens loose Teeth, which several Persons of Quality and others know to be true. I have sold all that is printed here to most of the Kings, Queens, Princes, Nobility and Gentry in England, since King Charles II. dy'd and before.

For the Good of the Publick.

WHereas several Gentlewomen and others of that Sex in this Kingdom, have contracted an evil Habit of Body, wherein the vicious Humours at first dispers'd thro' the Whole, come at length to be lodg'd in one Part or another, and many times, for Causes too long to be here mentioned are thrown down upon the Womb, occasioning a dangerous. Weakness in one Part, which being neglected, at last turns Cancerous, and often proves Fatal. I cure the Diabetes when given over by all other Persons. This is to acquaint all may have occasion, that a Speedy Relief is to be had from an Experienc'd Midwife, dwelling at the Sign of the Queen's Arms, a Gold Smith's Shop, near Exeter Exchange in the Strand, who perform'd a Cure upon a Lady at the Bath after she was given over by the Physicians, and since has Cured several Gentlewomen and others in the City and Suburbs of London. I should not have put my self in Publick Print, but to satisfy the Afflicted where they may, have speedy Relief after they are given over by all other Persons .
