George Washington Never Wore Wooden Teeth

Washington did have a series of different types of dentures. He has some that were made out of ivory, some that were made out of gold, some made out of lead (bad idea), and some made with human teeth taken from dead people. The most common was the ones made out of human teeth. But the whole wooden teeth thing never happened. Woods was never used in his dentures, or anyone else for that matter. It wasn’t something dentists did.
