Here at Alpenglow Dental, we believe that kids should start learning how to take care of their teeth. That is why; our Bountiful dentist will go to extra lengths to educate the children with the finer points of oral health. With these bits of knowledge, they can be empowered.
Equally crucial to their dental health is getting high-quality care too. Likewise, our Bountiful dentist provides comprehensive care and gentle treatments for beautiful, healthy smiles that will last a lifetime.
Here are 10 fun facts for kids to learn about their teeth and overall dental health:
1. The hardest part of the body is not the teeth per se. It is actually the enamel, or the top surface that covers the individual tooth. Thus, it is very important to ensure the health of the enamel because this layer protects the sensitive portions of your tooth.
2. Did you know our teeth start to form when we are still in our mother’s womb? Milk teeth begin their development even before birth but they emerge only when we are between 6 and 12 months old.
3. We have four different types of teeth. The first four teeth, which are located at the front of our mouth, called the incisors. Do you notice those fang-like teeth that grow next to the incisors? These are called canines; we have two on top and two at the bottom. Next to these canines are premolars; the teeth located on the side of the mouth are molars. While we use the incisors to bite on our food, the molars and premolars are used to chew and grind them.
4. We only have two sets of teeth. The first sets are the milk teeth; the other set is what emerges once we lose our milk teeth—they are called permanent teeth. Unlike the milk teeth, nothing grows after we lose the permanent teeth.
5. Did you know no two people have similar sets of teeth? Just like our fingerprint, our teeth are unique.
6. We produce more than 25,000 quarts of saliva throughout our lives. To put it simply, that is about two swimming pools. It is a good thing it is that plenty since saliva has many uses. Saliva protects our teeth from decay by washing down the bacteria. It also helps in our digestive process.
7. Can you believe an average person spends about 38 days to brush their teeth throughout their lifetime?
8. Did you know poor dental health is associated with heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis? Many studies have already confirmed this. For this reason, dental specialists highly recommend brushing the teeth at least twice a day; do not forget to floss too. Also, visit our Bountiful dentist at least twice a year for regular dental checkups to ensure optimum oral health.
9. What you see from the outside is just the tip of your tooth. Can you believe that is just two-thirds of the actual length of your tooth? The other one-third is planted and concealed beneath your gums.
10. Did you know milk helps the detached tooth survive longer? This comes handy when your tooth is knocked out. When this happens, place your detached tooth in milk then hold it inside your mouth. Since time is of the essence, see our Bountiful dentist immediately thereafter.
At Alpenglow Dental’s Bountiful office, we offer a wide variety of services. Our care begins with routine cleanings and regular preventive care to help you maintain a healthy smile every day. We recommend coming in for a regular cleaning once every six months. Committing to these timely routine cleanings will help you avoid costly dental repairs and uncomfortable pain in the future. Stop by for a friendly visit twice a year, and you might be able to avoid other visits in between.
Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to keep up with preventive care or to avoid all possible dental problems even if you do. Perhaps you need something more than a cleaning. In these cases, we offer restorative care such as fillings and crowns to help repair any problem areas in your teeth.
Do you want to brighten things up a bit? Our care includes cosmetic dentistry services. If there’s something special you’ve been waiting to invest in, now is the time to explore getting those services you want. We offer ClearCorrect braces, tooth whitening services, and other cosmetic solutions to help you improve your smile at any age.
