Life cycles of the teeth

Written by: Melinda Hudson

Gums

Then teething

Then chewing on toys



Gums

Then hurting

Then crying and making noise



Baby teeth fall out

And make room

For big teeth to sprout



Don’t forget to keep them clean

Brush and floss

In hopes they will look pristine



After years of abuse and candy

Nothing will make them feel better, 

Except for a shot of Brandy



Then comes the root canal and crown

Cavities and fillings

You have let your teeth down



The pain grows with every bite

Big teeth fall out

You endure the pain with all your might



You will lose them, when the time comes

And at the end of the cycle

You are back to the gums
