History of False Teeth Day
Our teeth and their condition have almost always been a sign of how we are living our lives. The ability to eat a good diet and have a nice smile needs us to have our teeth in good working order. Missing teeth can also impair speech and make one seem older than they are. Who wants to feel old when they are still young and wanting to conquer the world?
There have been different types of fake teeth as technology has progressed. One of the most famous people to wear dentures may be George Washington. There has always been the myth that he sported teeth made of wood. According to historical records, his fake teeth were made from ivory and held in place by wire. The only existing full set of his dentures to remain are on display at Mount Vernon and are a creation of animal and human teeth set in lead and ivory.
It’s important to keep your teeth strong and healthy so that you will not be one of the people who need fake teeth. Tooth disease and decay can affect your overall health. Heart disease, infection, pain, decreased concentration and lack of sleep are just some of the ways that the body can be affected. To keep this at bay, remember to have good oral hygiene and see your dentist or clinical dental technician regularly.
