Its always necessary keep your teeth clean

A tooth (plural teeth) is a small, calcified, whitish order start in the
jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and used to break down food. Some
animals, strikingly carnivores, also exercise teeth repayment for hunting
or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums.
Teeth are not made of bone, but degree of multiple tissues of varying
density and hardness.

The ordinary structure of teeth is similar across the vertebrates, although
there is respectable variation in their fabric and position. The teeth of

fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, however, the teeth are

I think the poem silence is all about wet carrot sitting under the summer
sun. It is getting dryer and dryer by the second. The carrot's life is soon
to be over but out of no where a little girl picks it up and takes it home.
She puts it in a pot of water and saves the carrots life. The girl
befriends the carrot and gets married to it because it is a guy carrot.
They move into a nice suberban home and live a long happy life together.
They grow old with eachother and the ironic part of this is that the lady
ends up drying up and dying before the carrot does. So the moral of this
story is to not pick up dry carrots.
