3 Amazing Facts About Your Teeth

Teeth are pretty incredible things. They somehow manage to stay mostly white while you endlessly chew on all sorts of things. Sometimes, people fail to realize how awesome their teeth are, so here are a couple facts about teeth to convince you that teeth are in fact wicked cool.

1. The enamel on the surface of your teeth is the hardest, densest, most hardcore thing on your body. Teeth are so dense that if someone punches someone you in the teeth, their fist will probably explode, and your teeth will probably make jokes about how weak and fragile their pathetic hand bones are.

2. Your Mouth produces over 25,000 quarts of saliva in a lifetime, which is enough to fill two swimming pools. Which is good, because saliva is your teeth’s best friend.

7. An average person spends 38.5 days brushing their teeth over their lifetime. That’s over a month of brushing your teeth all day, every day, without sleeping. If that seems like too much time to spend brushing your teeth in your life, and you decide to quit brushing your teeth to save time, you must weigh that time against how long you’ll spend trying to chew a steak without teeth.
