TOOTHPASTE WAS USED BY EGYPTIANS MORE THAN 5,000 YEARS AGO
You need to educate yourself if you believe that cleaning your teeth and going to the dentist are relatively new practices. The Egyptians did not use modern fluoride-enriched toothpaste, instead, they used an older formulation composed of salt, pepper, and mint. It just goes to demonstrate how important having healthy teeth has always been to people.
TOOTH ENAMEL, HARDEST SUBSTANCE IN YOUR BODY
Among all the bones in your body, nothing is tougher than your teeth. When you consider it, it makes sense! Your teeth are required to grind and chew through external objects every day, the other bones should, in theory, not come into contact with outside objects.
TOOTH DECAY IS A COMMON ISSUE OTHER THAN COLD
However, too many people have an illness that can be fully avoided. While you might not be able to prevent every cold, you can always take precautions to ensure your teeth stay strong.
