I Didn't Know That!
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 The first toothbrush was made in China about 500 years ago. The first toothbrushes were made from horsehair.
2 People in China have a day for teeth. It is called Love Your Teeth Day. Love Your Teeth Day is on September 20. People learn to take good care of their teeth.
3 Most babies do not have teeth when they are born. When babies are about six months old, they get their first teeth.
4 Teeth have different shapes. The shapes help them do different jobs.
5 Incisors have sharp edges. They help cut food.
6 Cuspids have pointed edges. They tear food.
7 Premolars have small, flat tops. They crush and tear food.
