Greenwich CT Dentures

If you need Greenwich CT Dentures, Dr. Fu thought you may find the following facts extremely interesting:

In the past, little was known about dentures and false teeth. Many years ago, dentures used to be made out of wood, ivory, metal, porcelain, and sometimes even human and animal teeth! These materials didn’t have the best results. They typically stained easily and quickly, often they went rotten, and after a while, they would have a putrid scent. Luckily, these types of dentures were only used between the years of 1790 and 1850. In the absence of suitable adhesives, the early dentures were held together by springs at each angle which helped to retain them in place with an open mouth.

Below is a photo of ivory dentures made hundreds of years ago:
