Did you know:

  • Tooth Enamel is the hardest substance in your body, but don’t open bottles with your teeth
  • When you don’t floss, you miss cleaning over 1/3 of your tooth surface-like you never brushed there at all
  • You should keep a tooth that has been knocked out in your cheek or a glass of milk to increase the chance of saving it
  • Store a toothbrush 6 feet away form your toilet- you don’t want that airborne bacteria settling on your brush
  • Ironically, according to studies, your toothbrush harbors much more bacteria than your toilet over a similar surface area
  • More than 300 different types of bacteria live in a healthy mouth and only a small number of those strains are actually harmful
  • The calcium and phosphorous found in dairy products is super healthy for teeth
  • Tooth prints are just as unique for each person as their fingerprints are
  • One in five patients wear braces as adults
