[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Good morning, it’s time for Chompers, your twice daily toothbrushing show. 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth. Pick a side, and brush in little circles all the way around each tooth.   


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>>RACHEL: It’s Teeth Week, and today we’ve got some jokes to knock those teeth loose with laughter. 


Here’s your first one: 


Why did the Queen go to the dentist?


>>KID: WHY?


>>RACHEL: She needed a crown!


[RIMSHOT/LAUGH]

[MUSIC BEGINS]


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and brush the molars in the back, too.


When teeth are damaged - like when they have a big hole or a crack - a dentist may fix them by putting on a crown! A tooth’s crown can be made of gold, but it’s definitely not the type of crown a Queen would wear on her head! 


[MUSIC ENDS]


>>RACHEL: Here’s your next joke: 


Why did the tree have to go to the dentist?


>>KIDS: WHY?


>>RACHEL: To get a root canal!


[RIMSHOT]


>>RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth… 


[SWTICH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and keep on brushing.


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Teeth have roots, like trees. Teeth roots don't look like tree roots, but they do a similar job.  


A tooth’s roots help keep the tooth safe in your gums. And a root canal is what a dentist does to clean and help heal the inside of a tooth.   




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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: but don’t brush too hard.


[MUSIC ENDS]


>>RACHEL: Here’s one last joke before we go: 


Who do baby teeth look to for answers?


>>KID: WHO?


>>RACHEL: Wisdom teeth!


[RIMSHOT/LAUGH]


>>RACHEL: Wisdom teeth are some of the very last teeth to come out. We call them wisdom teeth because they grow when we’re a teenager or a grown-up. So we get them when we’re more wise. Well … hopefully! 


[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: That’s it for Chompers today, but if you need teeth jokes to brush your teeth to, come back tonight. Until then, rinse with water before you…


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>>RACHEL: Chompers is a production of Gimlet Media.
