Why do we lose our baby (milk) teeth? How do they start to wobble and fall out? Why do we have teeth? And why do we have to brush them twice a day?
Take a tour of your teeth with Maddie Moate in this 2019 visit to Eureka! The National Children’s museum. There, she reviews different kinds of teeth, our baby or milk teeth, what our teeth are made of—enamel, dentin, a pulp chamber full of blood vessels and nerves, and the roots—and how to keep our teeth clean.
