Your teeth play a vital role in everyday life. You rely on them to chew, talk, bite and of course show off your smile! Unless you are having a problem with your teeth, you probably don’t give them too much thought. However, your teeth are special, and there are many facts you may not know about them. At Unionville Orthodontics, we’re here to share some knowledge about your teeth.
Did you know…
- 1. A tooth can erupt in your mouth already with a cavity.
- 2. A cavity is not self-healing. The body cannot heal a cavity on its own. This can only be done with oral care and treatment. The problem will just get worse unless you take care of it!
- 3. A tooth can grow into your mouth in any direction – upside down, sideways or backwards!
- 4. The “crown” is the easiest part to see of a tooth. The rest of your tooth is really a quarter to a third under your gums!
Your smile and your teeth are very special! Each person has a unique and identifiable set (just like fingerprints). At Unionville Orthodontics, you can rely on us to personally treat each smile with the care and attention it deserves. Contact us today for your personal smile consultation in Markham!
