Learn More about Your Teeth

There are four teeth that appear between the age of eighteen and twenty five years. The teeth are called the wisdom teeth — since it was believed you got them once you were wise and knowledgeable.

Key takeaways:

  • Teeth are arranged in a curved line along the top and bottom jaws in the mouth. The visible part is the crown whereas the root is found within the gum.
  • A sticky coating of germs/bacteria forms on the teeth during the day. The creamy coating is referred to as plaque and is the cause of tooth decay.
  • Brush your teeth the last thing at night and at least one other time during the day. You should use fluoride toothpaste that helps to keep tooth enamel strong.

Every time you eat or drink anything sugary your teeth are under attack from the plaque acids for up to one hour. This is because the sugar mixes with the bacteria in the plaque to produce the harmful plaque acids.
