Most people probably have no idea what happens to their teeth and fillings once they’re extracted. Maybe it’s something you’ve never given a lot of thought to, but it’s actually pretty fascinating. Dr. Stephen Hill gives the lowdown on what happens to your teeth once they leave your mouth.

When you were a kid, and you lost your teeth, if you were like many American kids, your parents probably tucked it under your pillow and told you the tooth fairy took it while you slept. Why the tooth fairy needed so many teeth is anyone’s guess- but believe it or not there are uses for teeth once you’re done with them!

Of course, the best place for your teeth is to stay in your mouth! So keep them healthy by brushing twice a day, flossing, and getting regular exams. If it’s time to set up an appointment for your next exam, give Dr. Hill a call at 469-640-9550.
