Local Dentures Repaired Dublin, Wexford, Waterford and Kildare

George Washington was an American military general, who served as first president of the United States from 1789 70 1797. He led patriot forces to victory during the War of Independence. He presided at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 which established the U.S. Constitution and the Federal Government.

George Washington lived in a mansion, part of a very large estate which held some of his many businesses, in Mount Vermont, Virginia. Now, beautifully restored and open to the public. As the White House wasn’t completed until 1800, and he died in 1799, he was the only US president not to live in the White House.

In every Dental School at same point or another they will discuss George Washington’s false teeth. It is widely thought that they were made out of wood, the now legendary denture are currently on display at his house, in Mount Vermont.

With an inscription that reads:

‘Although George Washington brushed his teeth regularly, by the time he took office as president at age 57, he was wearing full dentures. Contrary to popular myth, Washington’s false teeth were not made of wood but of human and cows’ teeth as well as elephant ivory. The dentures required frequent adjusting to function naturally and Washington repeatedly sent them to John Greenwod, his dentist in New York City, for repairs’.

And why I am telling you all of this you may be wondering. Well he had a full set of teeth that kept breaking and gave him constant ulcers. As well as his many businesses, he lived in Virginia and yet his dentist was in New York and keep in mind that this was the 1700s.
