6 Snippets of Tooth Trivia

Dental Health and Basic Dental Care

Want a brilliant mind about dental care? Sharpen your knowledge and your wit with these fun facts about dentistry. Then dazzle your friends with your wisdom on teeth.

1. What’s the hardest substance in the human body? No substance is tougher than tooth enamel, which is the visible part of the tooth covering the crown. Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body because it contains the highest percentage of minerals. But while this high mineral content makes tooth enamel strong, it also makes it fragile and vulnerable to destruction through demineralization caused by decay. So while tooth enamel is very hard, it’s still very easy to lose.

2. What’s the craziest way that floss has been used? Although it’s skinny and scrawny, dental floss is much stronger than it looks. In 1994, a prison inmate in West Virginia braided dental floss into a rope and then used it to scale the prison wall and escape without a trace. And you thought floss was only used to escape the problems of plaque!

3. How often should your toothbrush be replaced? You should buy a new brush at least every three months. And be sure to always toss your toothbrush after having a cold, the flu, or any other kind of viral infection. Why? Because that bacteria can remain on the brush’s bristles and lead to re-infection. Now that’s reason enough to swap out your brush.

4. How bad is soda for your teeth? People who consume three or more glasses of soda each day have 62 percent more tooth decay, fillings, and tooth loss than others. And if you think that diet soda is any better since it doesn’t contain any sugar, think again. While it may be free of the sugar that led to decay, it still contains the acids that wear away at tooth enamel. Better think before you drink and choose something better than soda.

5. How common is gum disease? More than three-quarters of Americans suffer from some form of gum disease. In fact, it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in people over age 35. Fortunately, most cases of gum diseases can be controlled, corrected, or completely prevented by practicing good dental care habits.

6. How often should you go to the dentist? While we often hear that we should see the dentist twice a year, that recommendation is not based on medical wisdom but was actually an ad slogan for Pepsodent toothpaste in 1929! The concept was embraced and encouraged by dental care experts and today we’re told to go twice a year. While it may have started as a catchy tagline, the notion of visiting the dentist twice a year reflects the idea of prevention. If you practice a little prevention and see an affordable dentist twice a year, you can spot and stop dental problems before they become severe.
