Throughout human history, man has been trying to create the perfect set of false teeth, or dentures. Long before the legendary story of President George Washington’s wooden teeth—which were actually made of a combination of hippopotamus ivory, human teeth and parts of donkey and horse teeth—people needed to replace missing teeth. Archaeological evidence points to ancient Egyptian, Mayan and Etruscans of Italy attempting to construct primitive dentures. Today fortunately, advances in technology and dental materials have made dentures more comfortable, natural-looking and durable. Dr. Douglas Baldwin and his team at Foundation Dental Solutions in Arlington, TX, offer a variety of denture solutions for people who have either complete or partial tooth loss.
