1     Are you a happy camper or a long-faced fellow when it is time to see your dentist? That might depend on how well you take care of your teeth.
2     Teeth are the hardest, most durable organs in our bodies. In fact, teeth are often the only remains that can be recovered from a person that died very long ago. 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 many months and occasional periods of discomfort, babies finally have their first set of 20 small teeth, called deciduous teeth, baby teeth, or milk teeth, by age 3.
