Some Interesting Dental Facts

dental factsAs a dentist, your knowledge of teeth, gums, and all things related are a given. That’s why you are considered an expert above the rest of us and why your patients look to you for guidance when it comes to dental care. With that in mind, we thought it might be fun to compile a few dental facts that you can pass on to your patients so they can be more in touch with what it takes to keep their mouths healthy and happy. Try these on for size:

On a slightly different note, but still related, your patients who are women and children are apparently showing your work off more than your male patients. Although not strictly dental facts, it’s interesting to note that the average woman smiles 62 times a day, while the average man smiles only 8 times. And children laugh 400 times a day in comparison with adults chortling just 15 times in an average day.

While we can imagine that none of these dental facts were surprising to you, we do believe that they are important to pass on to your patients who may learn something new from them.
