This weekend, Dr. Allan Acton visited the NC Museum of History to view the travelling exhibit on George Washington. The actual dentures of Washington were at the exhibition, along with a display on how they were made. The teeth in his dentures were a combination of human and cow teeth (they weren’t made of wood, by the way). Washington’s teeth were a problem for him throughout his whole life. He even bought a new toothbrush during the Constitutional Convention. The exhibit was fascinating.
