Show us your pearly whites! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby tell you about those totally cool tools in your mouth we call teeth. In it, you’ll learn how certain teeth are specially designed to cut, crush, or grit food in order to begin digestion. You can also find out about the layers and parts of a tooth, the two sets of teeth people have in a lifetime, how people get and treat cavities, and how to take care of your teeth to prevent tooth decay and plaque buildup. And of course, don’t forget to brush - and floss!
