We know that the human body is capable of producing two separate set of teeth due to natural human growth of the body and head, but not more than two. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to supply new teeth in the place of ones that have been damaged or removed? It would be safe to assume that it is biologically possible, especially given the fact that the human body does produce two separate full set of teeth over its lifespan.
That problem is that the second set of teeth we grow is meant to last a lifetime. Interestingly, the only element capable of damaging or deteriorating teeth by natural means, is the actual consumption of the food itself. We are of course referring to the acidic bacteria found within the foods we eat. Several types of edible food consumed by humans are capable of damaging tooth enamel to critical levels within a pretty short period of time. What went on before the invention of the toothbrush and various dental cleaning methods, one might ponder? Why haven't humans evolved in the past tens of thousands of years to the point where repairing or re-growing teeth is naturally occurring? Good question. No great answer!
Because unfortunately, we don’t get a third set of teeth, we must be careful with our adult teeth, our last natural pair. And, because our teeth are more fragile than they may seem, we recommend that you protect yourself by taking these preventative measures against the following oral health risks:
