Why You Need Your Teeth

 

Although brushing and flossing your teeth may get monotonous, have you ever taken time to think about how amazing your teeth are? Not many people take time to think about their teeth and what a blessing it is to have teeth. The next time that you are annoyed with brushing and flossing, just think…

 

  • Your teeth are the reason that you can chew. Just think about how sad it would be if you were not able to chew your favorite food! If you didn’t have teeth, you would not be able to chew your food.
  • Your teeth enable you to speak properly.  Just try to say anything with the “th” or “t” sound in it. Notice how your tongue touches up against your teeth? If you didn’t have teeth, you wouldn’t be able to make the noises that enable you to speak well.
  • Your teeth keep the shape of the lower part of your face. Your teeth affect the length and shape of your face and without teeth, others would be able to tell there was something wrong with your face.
  • Your teeth keep your jaw bones healthy and strong. If your jaw bones didn’t have teeth to support they would shrink and atrophy.

 

So, even though you may feel like your teeth require a lot of maintenance, just think of everything that they give back to you! When you go to bed tonight, you may have a different attitude about brushing and flossing.
