Science Facts Thursday: Oh My Molar!

Oh my molar, it's science facts Thursday! ♥

Continuing the anatomy theme this week with teeth!

A set of teeth is called a 'dentition'.
There are 4 main types of tooth in the permanent adult set, each tooth has its own job to do when it comes to nomming your food

A typical tooth has two main parts. The tooth that can be seen above the gum line is called the crown. Each tooth is anchored into the jaw bone by its root/s.

So there you have it, teeth. Make sure you look after yours, brush twice daily.
And if you ever wondered how astronauts brushed their teeth in space, watch this video:


  1. Yay! Teeth! ♥ Great facts. :) I love the illustrations too.
    You should have your own encyclopedia!
