 Washingtonia - George Washington Trivia

Washington had a history of dental problems. When he was 57 he had all of his teeth pulled out. Many have grown to believe over the years that he wore wooden dentures but that was not the case. In fact, his dentures were made from human or animal teeth and ivory or lead, sometimes from even Hippopotamus' teeth! His two sets of dentures were made by John Greenwood, one of the most prominent dentists of his day.
