1. Your teeth are one of a kind!
    We always hear that fingerprints are one of a kind but teeth are too! Even identical twins do not share the same teeth.

  2. Their size is perfect.
    Elephants’ teeth are close in size to a brick, imagine carrying that around in your mouth! Luckily, human teeth weigh between .68 and 1.88 grams, not that of an elephant which is anywhere between 4 and 4.5 pounds.

  3. You have just the right number!
    A garden snail has around 14,000 teeth, some species of catfish have 9,000 teeth, dogs have 42, so we are lucky to only carry around 32 teeth.

  4. They are strong and sturdy.
    In fact, tooth enamel is the strongest surface in the human body!

  5. They help you speak.
    Imagine saying, “ten tricky turkeys trotted to the table,” without your teeth.

  6. Your teeth work a full time job.
    Teeth chew and bite to help digest food around 30,000 times each day. Talk about a huge responsibility for such a small body part.

  7. Teeth are famous!
    From the well-known famous tooth fairy, to national holidays such as world smile day, and dental hygiene month, teeth have a few holidays of their own!

  8. Teeth are low-maintenance.
    Brushing your teeth during the day may seem like it takes a lot of time and effort, but actually the average American spends only 38.5 days of their life brushing their teeth!

  9. They play an important role in the team!
    With good oral hygiene comes a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, oral cancer, and other health problems.

  10. Last but not least, your teeth make other people smile!
    Laughing, smiling, and talking with those you love would not be as uplifting if you didn’t have teeth. Plus the more you smile the more others smile!
