Did you know….Dentistry!

Dentistry is a topic that you may not have given much thought…. But there are so many interesting facts that you might find surprising and perhaps even shocking! Check some out here…..

– The outside coating that protects your teeth is called ‘tooth enamel’. Did you know this is the hardest part of your entire body?

– There are 4 different types of teeth which are incisors, canine, premolars and molars.

– No two people possess the same set of teeth – like your fingerprints, they are completely unique and should be taken good care of.

– In an average person’s lifetime, 38.5 days will be dedicated to brushing their teeth!

– The effect that your oral health has does not stop with your mouth. Your oral health is a good indicator for the rest of your body and in turn, your oral health can affect other organs in your body such as your heart.

– A third of a person’s tooth is obscured from vision, buried underneath their gums – so only a third of each tooth is actually visible!
