Its always necessary keep your teeth clean

A tooth (plural teeth) is a mignonne, calcified, whitish structure start in
the jaws (or mouths) of various vertebrates and used to ease up down food.
Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also take teeth for the purpose
hunting or for defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered sooner
than gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but to a certain extent of multiple
tissues of varying density and hardness.

The ordinary design of teeth is nearly the same across the vertebrates,
although there is sizeable variation in their show up and position. The
teeth of mammals get deep roots, and this design is also found in some
fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, regardless how, the teeth
are partial to to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are
fond of to the inner side of the jaw by way of one side. In cartilaginous
fish, such as sharks, the teeth are unavailable by cold ligaments to the
hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.

I liked the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening because of how
ercsdiptive it was. It captured the feeling of awe everyone can relate to
when we experience snow falling on trees, and how it creates the winter
scene. The despcriptiveness created a very clear indication of how the
author was feeling, and the way the poem seemed to stop in time was very
effective. I personally love snow, so I could understand how the scene
captured the man enough to stop his journey. It was touching because it
showed appreciationg for one of the simple natural beauties in life.
