TOOTH WEAR

TOOTH WEAR: NORMAL AND PARAFUNCTIONAL

Do you know roughly how many times your teeth meet during eating in a YEAR?

If you eat 5 times a day, chew an average of 300 times per meal, and live on average of 80 years on this planet?you would have used your teeth : 5 X 300 X 365 days in a year X 80 years = 43.8 MILLION times in your lifetime.

If you visit the dentist once a year for a check-up, your teeth would have been used an average of half a million times between visits.
