 It seems children have the right idea

About smiling…they smile about 400

 times a day.

 Women smile about 62 times a day compared to men who smile eight times a day on average.

Each person’s set of teeth is unique much

 like their fingerprints. Even identical twins do not have exactly the same set of teeth.

 Did you know that your tongue print is also unique? Does the hand you write with affect your teeth? It can. Right-handed people, tend to chew food on their right side, while left-handed people tend to chew on their left side.

The electric chair was invented by a dentist. William F. Semple, a dentist from Mount Vernon, OH. was issued the first patent in 1869 for chewing gum.

In the old days when dentures weren't invented yet, dentists would do a quick surgery in implanting teeth in the mouth of a person. The teeth came from dead people!

Aztec dentists would mix iron fillings, water and navel lint bake and insert it in the cavities to seal it.
