Fun Facts Just for Kids

We bet you love to laugh, smile, and have fun, but did you know your pearly white teeth are made of enamel which is the hardest substance found in the human body? Your teeth and mouth are awesome, and we want you to come visit us so at Coastal Pediatric Dentistry so we can tell you all about them. In the meantime, here are some cool facts about teeth we bet you didn’t know:

  • If you’re right handed, you’re more likely to chew on the right side of your mouth, and lefties tend to chew on the left.
  • Your tongue has its own unique print. Like a finger print.
  • More people prefer blue toothpaste than red toothpaste.
  • Kids laugh more than 400 times a day.
  • Snails can have more than 20,000 teeth.
  • Elephants completely grind away and regrow their teeth 6 times in their life and their teeth can weigh 6 lbs.
  • We may not invite crocodiles to visit our dental practice, but nature has given crocodiles their very own dentist – the crocodile bird. Crocodile birds fly into the mouth of crocodiles and clean their teeth.

Kids and PArents Love us

Our 5-year old had a great experience, despite needing a cavity filled. Dr. Forester spent a lot of time with us explaining everything and totally put our son at ease. We're glad we found you! ~ Destini C., Facebook Review
