5 Things You Didn't Know About Your Teeth

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Beautiful Smiles Office
5 Things You Didn't Know About Your TeethWe take our teeth for granted, but they are crucial for biting, chewing and talking. You may be well-aware of the essentials of oral care, but did you know that tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body? Here are several other interesting facts about your milky whites:

Your Teeth are Unique

The set of teeth you have are unique, just like your fingerprints. This is why dental records are often used to discover human remains. Even identical twins do not possess identical teeth.

Teeth are Like Icebergs

Around one-third of your teeth are hidden within your gums. Maintaining gum health is important in order to make sure your teeth stay strong. Pink and firm gums are positive gum health indications.

Enamel Never Grows

Enamel is the outermost part of the teeth and acts as a protective layer. It consists of calcium and phosphate, and derives its strength from the proteins and crystallites it contains. Dentin is the layer beneath the enamel. Your dentin grows, but enamel never does.

You Spend a Lot of Time Brushing Teeth

A human with an average lifespan spends around 38 days of their lives brushing their teeth. Although this may appear to be a long time, but making an effort to keep teeth healthy is worth it. Brushing regularly can effectively prevent oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease.

Stress Harms Teeth

When you have a hectic day at work or school, stress can lead to headaches. An aching head may cause you to grind your teeth, which puts undue pressure on them. As a result, your teeth may get worn down or cracked. Consider wearing a night guard if you have a habit of grinding your teeth.

Each tooth is valuable and maintaining oral hygiene is of the utmost importance. If you are suffering from a toothache, schedule an appointment with us at Beautiful Smiles by calling us at (530) 206-9211 today.
