Facts you need to know about teeth

You may have read or been educated about maintaining good oral health as there is a lot to learn about them. Teeth are one of the most critical parts of the body as they help in chewing and breaking down food. They are also responsible for the pronunciation of some words and a lovely smile that is required for self-confidence. For good dental tips, you can also visit a private dentist Basingstoke.

Some unknown facts about teeth:

Unique: Before reading this, did you know that every tooth is unique? Similar to fingerprints, every person’s teeth are different from others and aligned in a different manner. Moreover, the shape and size of the tooth are not the same.

Enamel: One fun fact about enamel is that it is the hardest part of the human body. It is the outermost layer that protects the teeth from acidic foods and sugar so that teeth do not get chipped or cracked.

10,000 Gallons of spit: We all know that our mouth generates saliva that washes away the bacteria and also helps in the digestion and swallowing of food.  Throughout life, our mouth generates almost 10,000 gallons of spit. It is so much that it can fill a swimming pool.

You Are Born With All Teeth: People are born with two sets of teeth, the first one is primary and the second one is permanent teeth. A three-year-old child has almost 20 teeth and by the age of 14, they are all replaced by permanent teeth. The final set of teeth, known as wisdom teeth can appear any time after 17 years of age.

Almost 39 Days Of Brushing Lifetime: We all do brushing twice a day for two minutes each, not even if twice per person brushes at least once a day to follow oral hygiene. Over a lifetime a person spends almost 39 days of time in brushing their teeth. This means brushing your teeth for more than one month continuously.
