George Washington & Dental Implants
Dental Implants were not always the natural looking things that they are today. The legend that George Washington had wooden teeth turns out not to be totally true, in some ways it’s worse. Imagine sporting a combination of hippopotamus ivory, human teeth and metal fasteners. Doesn’t sound like much fun does it?
By the time he was President, so the story goes, he only had a single natural tooth in his head. When he took the oath of office it was with a combination of ivory, brass, and gold teeth built by a dentist, John Greenwood.

When that last tooth fell out, Greenwood got it as a memento. The evidence of the pain, discomfort and disfigurement caused by those teeth is present on those dollar bills in your pocket. President Washington said the teeth, which were hard to maintain, made his lips bulge.
