POSTING IN REMEMBRANCE of those who risked or lost their lives on September 11. 🇺🇸 #patriotday #september11 #weremember
OUR TEETH AREN’T all the same shape. We have four different types, and they each serve specific purposes, both in helping us chew and in giving us our beautiful smiles. 😃 That’s why it’s so important for them to be in the right places!
The front four teeth (both on the top and the bottom) are the incisors. These are built for slicing. Each time we take a bit out of an apple, our incisors shear off a tasty chunk. 🍎 However, other teeth will do the actual work of chewing.
Next up are those vaguely sharp teeth, which are called canines (because they resemble a dog’s teeth) or eyeteeth (because they line up with our eyes). Canines help us grip and tear food, especially meat. 🥩
After the canines are the premolars. Their outer edges are sharp, but they also have a bit of a flat chewing surface. They can help a little with tearing food AND with grinding it up. Only adults have premolars, and these eight teeth are the ones that replace our baby molars!
Last come the molars. These are our biggest teeth, with multiple roots and plenty of flat chewing surface for crushing and grinding food as we chew. These teeth do the most work to get food ready to swallow. #teeth #toothfacts #interesting
HAPPY LABOR DAY! We hope everyone is having a great holiday. ☀️ #laborday #nationalholiday #dayoff
STRAIGHT TEETH are healthier teeth. When teeth are less crowded, it’s easier to effectively clean them! 😀 #orthodontics #orthodontist #braces

OKAY, SO THE EVIDENCE suggests that the braces ancient Egyptians made out of catgut and metal bands were probably only used in burial rituals to help the dead person’s teeth look nice for the afterlife, but it’s still pretty cool. The ancient Greeks and Etruscans did the same. The Romans were the first to use braces to straighten the teeth of the living, beginning around 400 B.C. 😮
The field of orthodontics didn’t change much for over two thousand years after that. In 18th century France, Pierre Fauchard (often credited as the father of modern dentistry) created the first known modern braces. His invention was a horseshoe-shaped piece of metal with holes throughout it that was held in place by silk threads. (We’re glad we don’t live in the 18th century.) 😅
The father of modern orthodontics, Edward Hartley Angle, was the first to formally identify and correct different types of malocclusions in 1880. The three biggest changes to the field of orthodontics were the invention of dental adhesives in 1955, stainless steel in the ‘70s, and invisible aligners in the late ‘90s. We’ve come such a long way! 👍

SOMETIMES WE’RE SO excited to eat some of the pizza that just came out of the oven that we end up burning our mouths. 🍕 It happens to the best of us, but there are a few things we can do to soothe that burn.
1. Begin by sipping some cold water. It feels good and keeps us hydrated so our mouths can produce enough saliva to protect the burned area from bacteria. 💦
2. Stay cool by grabbing a yogurt, fruit cup, or applesauce. Maybe even try a smoothie or some froyo.
3. Add half a teaspoon of salt to a cup of warm water, stir, swish, spit, and repeat! It’s a good way to fight bacteria and help the burned area heal, and it’s a great remedy for sore gums or a recent dental procedure.
4. Another way to speed up the healing process is to apply sugar or honey directly to the burned area. 🍯 This provides quick energy to the damaged cells, but make sure to drink some water after to rinse away the residue.
5. If needed, take over-the-counter pain relievers for the first little while. Fortunately, oral tissues heal more quickly than any other part of the body, so even a painful burn to the tongue should be all better in days! 👅

WHO CAME UP WITH the idea of brushing twice a day? We hear it all the time from the dentist, but when did that idea really take off? 🤔 People have been brushing their teeth for a long time, but the big game-changer came before World War II!
In order to join the army, young recruits had to undergo thorough health evaluations from head to toe, including their teeth. The US Army’s standard for dental health was that you had to have at least twelve teeth to serve. Even then, many recruits couldn’t meet that standard and were rejected. It was the 8th most common reason to be turned away in World War I. Can you imagine that many young men having less than a third of the teeth they should? 😮
Poor dental health being such a widespread problem, the US Army decided to change things. Starting in 1908, they began introducing regular toothbrushing, complete with toothbrushing drills in schools. Even Uncle Sam got in on that action, encouraging schoolchildren to get a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. By the time World War II came around, the next generation of soldiers had much healthier teeth! 👍
