The Human Mouth
Just about everything that lives and can be classified as animal, fish, insect or bird has to eat and to do that they all have mouths. Many of them also use their mouths to make noises. The mouth is an important entry and exit point to the body.
In human animals, noise is what separates us the most from the beasts. Without our mouths, how would we speak to each other? OK, we have writing but that came long after language evolved and language emerged from a series of early pre-historic grunts.
Once we started using these grunts to communicate with each other, a fairly obvious tendency also arose and that was for us to look at the face of the other person trying to communicate with us. This means that we are often looking at people’s teeth. Those teeth may be primarily part of our eating equipment, but they do also play a part in producing the sounds we call speech.
Human vanity works two ways, we all desire to look pleasing to others and we all get discomforted looking at something unattractive. This is definitely the case when considering the teeth within our mouths.
The Human Brain
Whether thinking preceded communication or was a result of communication could be something of a “chicken or the egg” question. What is certain is that both have shaped us towards what we are today. Without thought and communication we probably would never have invented the wheel – let alone the atomic bomb. The power of communicated thought has also led us to develop items and things that might, at first, appear to be not really essential.
Since, as humans, we only get two sets of teeth in our lifetimes, it is essential that we take care of them. Dental science developed initially to help us with our eating habits. Some of dentistry’s origins were somewhat crude and basic but the skills improved over time to today’s point where no one need be denied a set of teeth to use for eating solid food. That is the obvious and practical side of invention at work.
A More Pleasant Looking Mouth From Making Over The Teeth
It also led to the development of cosmetic dentistry whereby teeth, that might be functional but do not have a pleasant appearance, can be remodelled to become attractive in the eye of the beholder.
