Our teeth are a pretty integral part in our survival as human beings. They help us with digestion by allowing us to chew food so we can eat more things other than just “mush.” If we don’t properly maintain out teeth, it can lead to tooth decay and eventually tooth loss. This can hinder our ability to chew a variety of foods.
Our teeth also help us with our speech. Speech is affected by the way our teeth meet and by the movement of our tongue around our teeth.
Our teeth also help us trim our nails and open beer bottles – okay, don’t do either of those with your teeth – and they help us become approachable and find a mate by showing our teeth to people in a non-creepy way.
