FEBRUARY IS DENTAL HEALTH MONTH

This goofy craft is easy to make and fun to play with.  It has a nice puppet quality.  But the best part about this craft is that it will help your students learn about what’s  inside a human mouth.  You can even use the mouth to demonstrate proper brushing and flossing.



DENTAL HEALTH FACTS – FUN FACTS ABOUT TEETH

· Dentists want you to brush and floss your teeth twice a day.

· You should brush for 2 to 3 minutes each time you brush.

· Be sure to brush and floss around your gum line.  One-third of the tooth is under your gums.

· Tooth enamel is the hardest substance on a human body. 

· Drinking soda is bad for your teeth.  It weakens the enamel.  Always rinse your mouth with water after drinking soda.

· No two people have the same set of teeth.  Your teeth are as unique as your fingerprints.  Your tongue print is unique, too.

· Humans have 32 teeth.  Dogs have 42.  Cats have 30.  Snails can have over 25,000.

· Humans have two sets of teeth in their lifetime.  Elephants get six sets of molars.

· Giraffes only have bottom teeth.

HAPPY DENTAL HEALTH MONTH!
