Fun Facts About Your Teeth
Secrets Your Teeth Keep- Your teeth can tell us more about you than whether or not you floss (as often as you are supposed to!) By looking at the patterns of wear on the teeth, a scientist can make educated assumptions about what a patient ate, where they lived, and even the patient’s age.
Teeth are with you at birth- When you are born you already have your first 20 teeth under the gumline. At about 3 months the teeth begin to break through. By this point, your adult teeth have already begun to form. And that is all you get. Two sets of teeth! That is why oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist from an early age are so important.
Your fingerprints are as unique as your teeth- While you may know that your fingerprints are solely unique to you, did you know that so are your teeth? Your teeth are completely unique. No two sets of teeth are exactly the same making your teeth as original as you.
A long, long time ago oral hygiene became an important part of staying healthy- And it still is! While the first toothbrushes on record date back 5,000 B.C, advancements in dental technology have taken us a long way since chewing on twigs and crushed eggshells. Modern dentistry and regular visits to the dentist allow people to live longer, healthier lives.
Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss and a whole bunch of other dental health concerns. Bi-annual dental check-ups are now also key in preventing damage and deterioration of your oral health. Dr. Lazer offers personalized and comprehensive dental health exams to help patients maintain their healthiest, most beautiful smile.
