Open your mouth, look at your teeth! Yes, those pearly little white teeth. Do you know how many teeth you have now, and how many “adult” teeth you will have later? This video explores basic teeth anatomy, the importance of caring for your teeth and exactly how you can take care of your teeth. Tune in and make sure you are able to answer the four questions in the video to pass this little introductory look into teeth.
