Interesting Facts About Your Pearly Whites

Interesting Facts About Your Pearly Whites

“I can’t wait for my dental appointment!” said no one ever! But then again, no one is exactly enthusiastic about a visit to any doctor. Back to dentists: did you know that your teeth are a white mystery? Well, you may think about the dentist differently after these fun facts.

Tough as Steel…Almost

The enamel is tougher than you think. It is actually harder than steel only that it breaks easily if exposed to too much pressure. Americans use more than 14 million gallons of toothpaste annually to keep the enamel happy and clean, but did you know that coconut oil could work just fine?

Disease for Indolence

A dental cavity is a concern in several parts of the world, with at least 75% of school-going children affected. You would think everyone would brush their teeth at least twice a day after all the information out there on the dental cavity, but 25% of adults find this a nuisance, effectively exposing their teeth and gums to disease.

All Smiles

Smiling is serious business, and at least 48% of the youth have untagged themselves from posts where the photo didn’t capture their smiles properly. Haven’t we all been offended by such? Oh, smile, now. It only takes 17 muscles when you smile while an entire village of them get together to configure that perpetual frown. By the way, the teeth whitening industry is an $11 billion giant, so it’s perfectly okay to unfriend someone if they insist on capturing the wrong side of your smile in all their photos.

Hide and Eat

In the 1800s, Europeans with false teeth were not allowed to risk embarrassing themselves at the dining table. They would eat in their bedrooms and only show up at the table later.

"I've been going to Dr. Do for almost 10 years, and he's the best dentist that I've ever had. In fact, I drive 45 minutes each way to receive care from him at Madison Square. He and his staff are caring, gentle, and friendly. He takes great care of his patients and tries to do everything as painlessly as possible. He stays up to date with new techniques and equipment. I also appreciate that he has Saturday appointments available. I trust him and his staff completely!"

"Dr. Do is amazing after having many dentist I have found Dr Do to be the most professional and honest. Over two years now and no cavity. I have never felt pushed to buy anything here. Even when I asked about teeth bleaching he did not push me at all to make a purchase. My wife goes here too and has needed dental work she got a second opinion which confirmed Dr Do assessment. Couldn't ask for more."

"Hands down the best dental experience we have ever had. The entire staff is incredible, they are amiable and accommodating. I received a floral arrangement from Madison Square Dentistry after losing my grandmother (seriously what other dentist does that) they have been flexible with the extensive dental work my husband needed and treat us like family. Highly, highly recommend this organization."
