Why do we, as humans have to brush our teeth, when animals don't?
And their teeth are fine!

Why do we have to? Why are they different? What will happen if we didn't?

Britt =]]
well because we don't want to have ugly teeth. Animals actually don't have bad teeth. they brush them all the time you just dont think they do!If we didn't brush our teeth then we would have bad breath, yellow and bad teeth, cavities. There is no such thing as animal dentists. So they have no choice. They can't just say oh im gonn go see my dentist tommarrow. First of all because they are animals and they can't talk and second of all they proboly don't know what a dentist is. What a stupid question!

jimmy the one
Cos we are mugs enough to buy (me included) the expensive gear to do so!!♀

We have to brush our teeth for hygiene purposes. And to get rid of plaque. Animals dont need this (apart from cats and dogs) as they eat unprocessed, raw food and they gnaw food as well which gets rid of rubbish. If we didnt clean our cats and dogs teeth with bicarbonate of soda or give them dental sticks and bones to chew on then they would lose their teeth as quick as us!

P.S. I hate the taste of mint!, I wish they did a adult size toothpaste like they do for small kids , strawberry flavour.

apart from having fresh breath and pretty teeth we need to try and make our teeth last as long as we do. while there is medicine for dogs it is not as advanced as ours. without modern medicine and technology we would probably all be dead by 30. we would also be eating amuch better diet. but since we live so much longer and eat more foods which cause tooth decay (sugar) we need to take more care of our teeth.

Dr Frank
They mostly have short brutal lives and die often before tooth decay has become established. Animals that are naturally long lives and pets, like cats, who now live much longer than they did in the wild, do run into problems with major tooth and gum disease.

They don't eat sugary foods, processed foods, etc.

Pink Cowgirl
Because we as humans have a diet full of refined sugar. Animals don't consume near as much sugar as we do, therefore don't get as many cavities. Animals also get periodontal disease, though because of the types of food they eat, they are able to clean off the plaque easier (Think of a horse eating hay.).

cos animals eat sensibly and dont consume sugary,teeth rotting substances like we do

Its because there are so many things in our diet that destroy our teeth. Almost everything we eat now has sugar in it, or is acidic, or both!

And of course people expect nice smelling breath.

Animals do clean their teeth - we just have a more sophisticated tool for the job. Many animals use grasses and barks of plants, whilst hippos, crocodiles and some other actually have other animals (usually small birds) do it for them - a kind of secondary meal...mmmmm!

cor blimey
have you ever smelled your pets breath it usually stinks

Its only a question of bad breath and ettiquette and bad diet !

Dogs eg have bones and things to chew on that naturally clean teeth, out poor diet is full of soft acidic things which dont help our teeth.
It bothers me that over generations we are losing the ability to keep our teeth naturally clean -all because of toothpaste
