Here are some fun #dental facts for you!

1. Before modern toothpaste was invented, people used a variety of different substances as teeth-cleaning products, including ashes, lemon juice, charcoal, and even ground-up chalk!

2. Do you place a cap on your toothbrush after brushing? You shouldn’t! Placing a cap on a wet toothbrush increases moisture on the bristles, creating an environment ideal for bacterial reproduction!

3. Enamel, the hard substance which makes up a #tooth, is the hardest part of the human body! Nevertheless, dentists recommend that patients refrain from chewing ice or eating popcorn. Even though our teeth are hard, they can still be chipped by popcorn kernels and brittle ice. Ouch!

Can you guess which animal has the largest teeth in the world?

Did you guess a whale? If so, you're wrong! Elephants have the largest teeth in the world. Their tusks are actually modified incisors!
