They say you learn something new every day, and for the most part that is a true statement. Sometimes what you learn isn’t obvious right away, but as time progresses, an obstacle may present itself and you remember what you learned that one time, and can easily remedy the situation.
Our mouths are filled with interesting facts that you may or not already know. Here are some interesting truths about our mouths and teeth.
Our teeth actually start forming while we’re still in the womb! However they don’t actually appear in the mouth until months after you are born (for the most part).
The enamel that surrounds the top part of our teeth is the strongest part of our bodies. Make sure you keep it strong by lots of brushing and flossing!
Our mouths produce enough saliva over our lifetime (38,000 quarts) to fill up two swimming pools!
No two teeth are the same. Everyone’s teeth are unique and special to only them.
Only a portion of our teeth are visible in our mouths. 1/3 of each tooth is planted firmly in our gums and jaw.
The truth is, our mouths and teeth are pretty incredible. Make sure you take good care of this part of your body and consult with your Ottawa dental professional if you ever have any questions or concerns regarding them.
