7 fun (and slightly odd!) facts about teeth
I think we can all agree that teeth aren’t hilarious. (Even if Jessica Biel seems to think so!) Your funny bone may have a sense of humour, but as far as body parts go, your pearly whites tend to keep to themselves.
This doesn’t mean they can’t be interesting, though. It’s quite the opposite really, which you’ll realise after reading these somewhat peculiar but rather enthralling facts about toothy pegs…
7 interesting (and slightly odd!) dental facts
#1. Your teeth are completely unique. No other human in the whole entire world has a set the same as yours.
#2. Priceline sells 4100 tubes of toothpaste each and every single day. That’s 125,000 tubes per month, and 1,500,000 per year. Wowzers!
#3. If you’re one of the many naughty people who forget to floss daily, 35 per cent of your tooth surface is going uncleaned.
#4. Want to avoid airborne particles from a flushed toilet landing on your toothbrush? Keep it at least 1.8m away from the loo and you (and your mouth!) will remain safe. Phew.
#5. Back in the middle ages, Germans believed the only way to treat a toothache was to kiss a donkey. Righty then…
#6. The enamel covering your teeth is the hardest tissue in your entire body.
#7. When it comes to toothbrush hues, most people would prefer to use a blue one over a red one.
