Aligned in place, they changed and grew A distinct frame to chomp and chew To rip, to crush, to tear and bite To process food, determined might

Forward canines made to tear Bold incisors lessen wear Solid molars help to crush Day and night our teeth to brush

A solid set, with aim to grind The sets of teeth we can but find Milk teeth formed, of first event The adult teeth grow permanent

Meat eaters are carnivores Plant consumers’ herbivores To brush is not inferior To balance bad bacteria

Balanced diet, portioned fruit Brighter teeth, a healthy root A poorer choice of alcohol With smoking yet will take its toll

For where leftover sugar lay An acid forms for tooth decay Improved choices – don’t delay Brush and floss teeth twice a day
