Teeth are interesting because almost everyone has them. Here are some answers to some of the most common questions about teeth.
Are All Teeth Sensitive?
Sensitive teeth are not uncommon in adults and have multiple causes. However, healthy teeth are rarely sensitive. If you suffer from sensitivity, it’s advisable to visit your dentist.
How Many Teeth Does A Human Have?
The amount of teeth a human has is 32. Of those, there are 28 primary teeth.
What Is The Average Age To Get Teeth?
There may be some variables from child to child, but most babies get their first teeth between 6-12 months. Usually, by the age of three, a baby will have all the milk teeth.
At What Age Do Wisdom Teeth Start To Grow?
Wisdom teeth take years to develop and grow, then finally, they erupt. However, the eruption process is different for everyone, so it’s hard to pin it to a particular age. It is typically in the late teenage years or early twenties for most.
Humans have only one set of permanent teeth. Good oral care and frequent visits to the dentist are some of the ways to avoid complications.

While it might not seem evident, good oral hygiene, which includes brushing, flossing and professional cleaning can help ward off infection and chronic illness.
Poor oral hygiene has long been associated with heart problems and infections, especially for those with diabetes and heart disease. Bacteria that builds in the mouth enters the bloodstream and can make people very ill.
