#1: In winter our teeth can become more sensitive, the cold weather can cause our enamel to contract and this can cause sensitivity. If you have any concerns with your teeth being sensitive it is always a good idea to book an appointment with your dentist to have this checked!
#2: As an adult we should have 32 teeth! though some people have more and some people have less! Have you counted how many teeth you have? Your dentist can tell you at your next check up!
#3: Teeth are the hardest substance in the body, you might think that bone would be the hardest, but it is actually our teeth! Our teeth are made up of 96% minerals, making them harder than bone!
#4: On average a person spends about 48 seconds brushing their teeth per day. 48 seconds is not enough time! Dentists recommend that we brush our teeth for a minimum of 2 minutes morning and night! to have nice clean teeth and mouths. How long do you brush your teeth for?
#5: Did you know that teeth are so receptive to the way they close together that you can feel something as small as a strand of your hair between them if you bite on it!
