We've got a mouthful of teeth anatomy info for ya! Chew on these toothy facts: Teeth are not bones. Both have loads of calcium and pulpy parts, however, bones can grow back, but teeth cannot.
Over our lifetime, we spend an average 38 days brushing teeth. That seems like 38 days well spent, right?
Babies form teeth in the womb, but ... they don't make an appearance in the mouth until 6-12 months. Humans enjoy a wide variety of tooth types, from wisdom teeth to canines, incisors to bicuspids. Most adults have 32 teeth: 12 molars, 8 premolars, 8 incisors and 4 canines. Wait, why does this not add up for me, you ask? Maybe your wisdom teeth got yanked.
Is the Tooth Fairy creepy? I mean, I know kids love swapping canines for cash, but, isn't it a little... odd? Vikings used to use kids' teeth to bring luck in battle. Other things we have done with kiddo's teeth: buried, burned, swallowed(!) by the mother, or put inside a tree. In China, Russia and Spain there is a tradition of a mouse that snatches teeth out of a child's mouth. Maybe that Tooth Fairy isn't so creepy after all.
