- Your digestive system starts in your mouth
- Chewing breaks down food into smaller bits
Incisors: sharp, long, flat teeth that tear food
Molars: grinds food, work closely with your tongue to help swallow food
Canine: pointed and sharp teeth used to tear food
Are teeth important with speaking?

- Controls air flow out of mouth
- The tongue touches the teeth as certain sounds are made.

Try saying "Justin Bieber" WITHOUT letting your tongue touch the front of your teeth....

Once enough bacteria builds up, it's going to form into plaque and then tartar
Plaque: sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms on teeth, makes teeth "feel fuzzy" to the tongue
- Eats away at the enamel, forming tiny holes on surface
Tooth decay: when bacteria in your mouth make acids that eat away at a tooth, leading to cavities

Brushing your teeth
Primary teeth:
the first set of teeth that you are born with (temporary)
Secondary teeth:
Adult teeth, the permanent set of teeth you have

How to brush teeth properly step by step:

Step 1.) Run toothbrush under water then put toothpaste the size of a pea on the toothbrush.

Step 2.) Place toothbrush inside mouth at a 45 degrees and brush softly in a circular motion on the side of your tooth.

Step 3.) Now move the toothbrush to the inside of each tooth brush in same motion as the first time.

Step 4.) The next thing that you want to do now is brush the part of your tooth you eat with this time it will be in a more back to front motion.

Step 5.) The easiest way to do this step is by holding your toothbrush bristles up and brush behind each tooth.

Step 6.) Now don’t forget the most important part of brushing your teeth is to brush your Gums/ Gum Line and your tongue so your breathe does not smell icky.

inflammation of the gums, bacteria in plaque build up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during tooth brushing, can cause gum disease if left untreated
