[THEME MUSIC BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Good morning, it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME MUSIC ENDS]


>>RACHEL: It’s TEETH WEEK. 


[FANFARE]


>>RACHEL: Teeth help us eat, and speak and they’re the strongest part of our body! So it’s time to give TEETH the tribute they deserve! 


[APPLAUSE]


And so, Teeth Week starts with a QUIZ!


[QUIZ THEME]


>>RACHEL: How many teeth do most grownup humans have?


Is it: 32?


[SHORT TEETH CHATTER]


>>RACHEL: 43?


[LONGER TEETH CHATTER]


>>RACHEL: OR 54?


[LONGEST TEETH CHATTER]


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and brush the molars in the way back.


To figure it out, let’s learn a little bit more about teeth.


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Most humans are born with twenty baby teeth.


[GOO GOO] 


>>RACHEL: But when you’re a baby, your baby teeth are hidden!


When a baby gets to be around 6 months old, their baby teeth start to come up


[UPSET BABY SOUNDS]


>>RACHEL: out of their GUMS -- that’s the pink part of your mouth under your teeth.


Baby teeth stick around for a while, but not too long. As we grow up, our baby teeth fall out -- so our grown-up, permanent teeth, can come in. 


Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and spit, if you have to.


So we start with 20 teeth … how many teeth do animals have? That could give us a clue about how many permanent teeth grownups might have. 


Let’s start with dogs! 


[BARK!]


>>RACHEL: Grownup dogs have 42 teeth! Cats! 


[MEOW!]


>>RACHEL: Grownup cats have 30 teeth! Pigs! 


[OINK!]


>>RACHEL: Grownup pigs have 44 teeth. Snails! 


[SNAIL SLIME] 


>>RACHEL: Snails can have over 20,000 teeth! 


>>KID: WOW!


[MUSIC ENDS]


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and brush your front teeth, too.


Alright, now that we know a little more about all kinds of teeth - it’s time to make a guess. 


How many teeth do most grownup humans have?


Is it: 32?


[SHORT TEETH CHATTER]


>>RACHEL: 43?


[LONGER TEETH CHATTER]


>>RACHEL: OR 54?


[LONGEST TEETH CHATTER]
