Teeth help us to bite and chew our food. If we didn't have teeth, we would have to eat only soft, squishy food, like babies do. Some soft foods, like applesauce and macaroni, are delicious, but it is wonderful to be able to eat a variety of foods. Our teeth help us to eat things like apples, carrots and corn on the cob. They help us to take bites out of sandwiches, tacos, and pizza slices. Teeth are AWESOME! Our teeth are so important that we need to do our best to keep them healthy and clean. We use toothbrushes and toothpaste to clean our teeth. We brush our teeth in the morning after we eat breakfast and at night before we go to bed.
