[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Rise and shine! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and brush all the way to the molars in the back.


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


>>RACHEL: It’s Teeth Week, and today we’ve got some true or false for you. I’ll say something, and if you think it’s true, give us a thumbs up. 


[DING!]


>>RACHEL: If you think it’s false, give us a thumbs down. 


[BUZZER]


>>RACHEL: Here’s your first true or false.


If you added up all the times you brushed your teeth, it would add up to 34 days. 


So is that true or false?


Does a person spend about 34 full days brushing their teeth in their lifetime?


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Find out after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.


The answer is… TRUE!


[DING!]


>>RACHEL: TRUE, in the United States that is. 


American people brush their teeth for about 2 minutes twice a day their entire life. And if you add it up, that’s like more than 50,000 minutes.


>>KID: HUH?


>>RACHEL: Or about 34 full days. Which is more than a MONTH! So a lot of us spend a month of our life brushing our teeth! Good thing we’ve got Chompers to make it fun. 


[MUSIC ENDS]


>>RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth, 


[SWITCH BELL] 


>>RACHEL: -and keep on brushing 


Here’s your next true or false: 


There are more bacteria in a person’s mouth than there are people on Earth. 


So is that true or false? Are there more bacteria in the mouth of one person than there are people on Earth?


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: The answer is… TRUE! 


>>KID: WHAT?


>>RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL:  and give your tongue a brush, too. 


There are over 7 BILLION humans on Earth. Which is a LOT. But scientists think that humans have between 20 and 100 BILLION tiny, tiny, tiny, invisible bacteria living in our mouth! 


[SCREAM]


>>RACHEL: But don’t worry! Most of them are totally okay to have. 


[SIGH]


>>RACHEL: And brushing your teeth helps knock out the bad ones!


[MUSIC ENDS]

[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: So it’s important to come back tonight for more brushing and more True or False on Chompers. 


Until then…


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
