Teeth   

1     Are you a happy-camper or a long-faced fellow when it is the time of the year to see your dentist?
 
2     Teeth are the hardest, most durable organs in our bodies. In fact, teeth are usually the only remains left long after a person passes away. Hence, archaeologists and forensic experts often rely on teeth they have recovered to solve historical or criminal mysteries!
 
3     With occasional exceptions, babies do not have "visible" teeth at birth. (For those with "visible" teeth at birth, we call their teeth "natal teeth.") We emphasize the word "visible" here because babies do have teeth hidden under the gum line when they are born. In fact, tooth development begins soon after the second month of pregnancy, but teeth do not break through the gum line until babies are about six or seven months old. After countless nights of crying and feeling discomfort, babies finally have their first set of 20 small teeth, called deciduous teeth, baby teeth, or milk teeth, by age 3.
