Here Are 10 Fun Dental Facts

  • If you’ve been using floss daily, by the end of the year the total length will be the perimeter of a baseball diamond! Is your floss going to make it to home plate?
  • Because birds lack teeth, many swallow stones or grits to aid in breaking up hard foods.
  • On average, women smile 62 times a day and men only eight times a day. Step it up, guys!
  • The average American spends 38.5 total days brushing their teeth in their lifetime.
  • Only 40 percent of young people age six to 19 have had cavities in their life. That’s down from 50 percent a decade ago!
  • In the middle ages, people thought that a dog’s tooth boiled in wine made an excellent mouth rinse to prevent tooth decay. Tasty!
  • The Egyptian Plover, also known as the crocodile bird, is famous for flying into crocodile mouths and cleaning their teeth.
  • Prior to the 1850s, ‘toothpastes’ were usually powders and contained soap and chalk.
  • An obscure law in Vermont states that it is illegal for women to wear false teeth without the written permission of their husband. Crazy!
  • Different animals have different amounts of teeth; armadillos have 104, pigs have 44, and humans have 32.
  • The narwhal’s tusk Is actually a tooth! Better yet, do you know what a narwhal is?

Another Cool Fact:

Our teeth are amazing! Without them, we wouldn’t be able to speak, eat, sing, or smile properly. So take care of them and they will let you enjoy life with a large happy foolish grin.
