Did you know that only 50% of people brush their tongue when they brush their teeth? Brushing your tongue is just as important as brushing your teeth, as it helps remove bacteria and freshens your breath.

In some cultures, permanent teeth are called “love teeth” because they tend to come in around the time that people fall in love for the first time. But let’s be real, sometimes those new teeth don’t look so great!
And now, we want to hear from you! Can you come up with your own silly tooth fact to add to our list? Share it in the comments below with the hashtag #SillyToothFacts and let’s keep the smiles and laughs going!
