George Washington had wooden teeth. Who could possibly carve something like that? They must have been made of hardwood, possibly oak. This is something suitable for Google. Google says that while George had a number of dental appliances made of different things, none of them were made of wood. Ivory, brass, lead, and human teeth were some of the alternatives given by Google. How did he manage with stuff like that? It seems like an insurmountable obstacle to daily living. George was 67 when he died. I should be happy that I can still eat steak with my original equipment.
