      Incisors

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Canines
    C. Molars
    D. Incisors
    Explanation
    Canines, molars, and incisors are all types of teeth. Canines are the pointed teeth located on either side of the front teeth, used for tearing and gripping food. Molars are the flat teeth at the back of the mouth, responsible for grinding and chewing food. Incisors are the sharp, thin teeth at the front of the mouth, used for cutting and biting food. Dentist, on the other hand, is not a type of tooth but a profession related to dental care and treatment.

    Which of these will cause tooth decay?

    • A.

      Brushing your teeth twice a day

    • B.

      Visiting the dentist

    • C.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Eating TOO many sugary foods
    Explanation
    Eating too many sugary foods can cause tooth decay because the bacteria in our mouth feed on the sugars from the food we eat and produce acids. These acids can erode the enamel, which is the protective layer of our teeth, leading to cavities and tooth decay. Brushing your teeth twice a day and visiting the dentist are actually good practices to maintain oral hygiene and prevent tooth decay. Therefore, the correct answer is eating too many sugary foods.
