George Washington’s False Teeth and Clothes Worn by Washington

It is ironic that despite all the achievements of George Washington as the “father of our country,” the most popular display at George Washington’s Mount Vernon home is that of his false teeth.  Over the years, Washington had slowly lost all of his teeth except for one.  Contrary to belief, Washington’s false teeth were never made of wood.  Instead, they were made from human teeth, cow teeth, and ivory.
