Don’t Be An Elephant
The largest land mammal on Earth is also one of the longest living animals. Elephants are known to live up to 70 years. What is magic about 70 years? These animals are herbivores meaning they eat grasses and vegetation. These foods take a lot of grinding to get the nutrition the elephants need. Elephants get 6 sets of teeth (we only have 2). Each set of teeth typically wears out the grinding on their food, around every 10 years. When the last of the teeth wear out the Elephant dies of malnutrition.
Fortunately for us, we are Omnivores. That means we can eat a variety of foods and are not limited to what wears out our teeth, and clean your teeth well at home and professionally, at the dental office, you’ll most likely keep your teeth as along as you want
