Senior woman with a beautiful smile thanks to dentures supported by dental implantsFor edentulous (without teeth) patients, removable dentures have been the go to tooth replacement option for centuries. The first president of the United States, George Washington, was famously rumored to have wooden dentures. While President Washington’s prosthetic smile was made up of numerous components, it seems unlikely wood was one of them. His denture did have gold, silver, human teeth, and even hippopotamus teeth. There are even more crude dentures found in bodies 100s and 1000s of years ago. Dentures are a tried and true tooth replacement method, and at Canatella Dental, we still make use of them every day, and innovations in the manufacture and materials make dentures a more comfortable option than ever.
