The so-called “milk teeth”, which we have from between six and 12 months to approximately nine years, are a wonder of nature. There are 20 teeth that appear to help us eat (and, since primitive times, to defend ourselves from attacks), and they constitute a natural adaptation to the size of our mouths, since a tooth as such does not grow, but initially we have small teeth and They are replaced by larger ones (totaling 32 pieces) when our mouths acquire the size of adulthood.
The Tooth Fairy or the Tooth Fairy are a beautiful excuse that baby teeth give us to communicate with our children, teach them about money management and about the advances in the stages of life. There are even interesting biological data, such as that catfish have 9,280 teeth, that the largest teeth are the tusks of elephants or that a crocodile can change its teeth 50 times, although the “pluvial bird” or “dentist bird” has them. clean frequently.
Despite being temporary teeth, baby teeth require the same care as permanent teeth. Brushing, flossing and dental check-ups twice a year prevent pain, cavities and, especially, problems derived from the emergence of adult teeth, since many times these fail to come out correctly and become twisted, generating deformations and subsequent difficulties that may require complex and expensive orthodontic work.
