Here is a fun dental fact about George Washington. Of course, you ought to know who George Washington is. But have you ever heard about his false teeth? For many years people believed his dentures to be made of wood, apparently, that’s not the case. According to anthropologist, Jeffrey Schwartz, and his research team, Washington has at least four sets of dentures, and the one that had been put under the microscope revealed that Washington was sporting dentures made of ivory, gold, lead and human and animal teeth.
This mixture of dentures materials might have posed well for the time, but they were kept hidden from the public eye. Many portraits of Washington show him with his head held high and his mouth tightly sealed. Maybe it’s because the dentures weren’t esthetically pleasing.
You wouldn’t smile either if you had to wear dentures like that. Luckily, advanced technology and dental materials boost the overall look of dentures, implants, bridges and crowns. In Baltimore, dentures, full and removable partials, are available at K. Michael Murphy and Associates.

Cosmetic Dentist Baltimore MDPaul Revere—one of the most prominent figures in American history. His famous midnight run alongside two other men, William Dawes and Samuel Prescott, is celebrated in history books. Besides warning John Hancock, Samuel Adams and other patriots of the impending approach of the British, Revere dabbled in dentistry. Who knew?
Revere was an amateur dentist and a professional silversmith. Combining those trades together, Revere was able to construct wire dentures, which were made of walrus ivory or animal teeth, and place them in his patients’ mouths. The wire allowed patients to maintain the mechanics of theirs jaws and teeth.
Over 200 years later, we are still making breakthroughs with dental techniques and technology. At our office, two revolutionary dental procedures are one-visit smiles (single-day implants) and one-visit crowns. A one-visit smile is a procedure to restore smiles with dental implants—in one office visit. Instead of waiting for months, Dr. Murphy fits and places implants by using advanced implant technology. A one-day smile isn’t for everyone, so it’s important to contact your cosmetic dentist in Baltimore.
Revere is revered for his midnight ride, but we also want to remember his passion for dentistry. Did you know Revere worked on people’s teeth? What fun dental facts can you share with us? Your Baltimore dentist looks forward to your comments!
