BRED BLOG: Presidents Day
Dentistry has come quite along way since these GREAT UNITED STATES very first Presidential Chompers !!
George Washington : Dental History
By middle age Washington had no teeth left. But he did have several sets of dentures, made from such materials as hippopotamus ivory, seahorse ivory, and lead.
Other sets used the teeth of pigs, cows, elks, and humans. Paul Revere made him a set of false teeth. There is a set of Washington’s dentures in the University of Maryland Dental Museum in Baltimore. Washington’s clumsy, ill-fitting dentures distorted his lips. This contributed to the dour expression Washington has in various portraits. Also, painter Gilbert Stuart disliked Washington and accentuated the distortion in what became the most famous of all Washington portraits. The Peale portrait of 1776 shows a long scar along Washington’s left cheek. This resulted from an incision to treat an abscessed tooth.
