Fun Facts from our Family Dentist San Antonio Office
Our family dentist San Antonio office cares about the health of your teeth. We often post information about the best practices and the importance of maintaining healthy teeth. This post is a little different. Here are a few fun facts about teeth that you probably didn’t know before:
Teeth are like fingerprints in that no two sets of teeth in the world are the same. This is why Invisalign is a great new discovery for straightening teeth: the aligner trays are custom-made to your individual teeth.
An inmate in a West Virginia prison braided dental floss and used it as a rope to climb down the prison wall in 1994. Do not try that at home!
Right-handed people chew food more often on the right side of their mouth, while left-handed people chew more on the left side.
Babies do not naturally have the bacteria that decays teeth in their mouth, like the rest of us do. Parents or caregivers can actually give them this bacteria by blowing on their food, sucking on their binky to “clean” it, or kissing the baby.
Believe it or not, dentistry is actually pretty interesting! This is why we love what we do. Look for more fun facts in our upcoming posts on the Wurzbach Parkway Family Dental blog. And remember that our family dentist San Antonio office is always available if you have questions or need to schedule an appointment.
