Teeth are important because:
- They help you chew your food - without teeth we would have to drink liquids and miss out on some wonderful, nutritious and delicious foods.
- They help form words - If you lose a tooth you will notice you talk differently then you did before. Imagine what it would be like if you lost all your teeth at once. It would be hard to talk so other people could understand.
- They help make you look happy - Clean and well taken care of teeth show other people that care about yourself. Clean teeth will also make you feel good about yourself and others will see that in your pearly white smile.
