(HealthDay News) -- Your teeth are incredibly strong, and with the proper care and regular dental visits, you can keep them that way.
The American Dental Association offers these "tooth truths":
- Tooth enamel, which is 96 percent mineral, is the hardest substance in the body.
- Your teeth can exert an average of 200 pounds of pressure when you bite down.
- Teeth can last many hundreds of years, outlasting the person whose mouth they're in.
- Teeth are strong, but they don't heal on their own and require a dentist's attention when damaged.
