Teeth & Dental Health

I Had a Loose Tooth

I had a loose tooth, a wiggly, jiggly loose tooth.
I had a loose tooth, hanging by a thread.

So I pulled my loose tooth, this wiggly, jiggly loose tooth.
And put it 'neath the pillow when I went up to bed.

The fairies took my loose tooth, my wiggly, jiggly loose tooth.
So now I have a nickel and a hole in my head.

My Wobbly Tooth

Once I had a wobbly tooth
That wobbled to and fro,
Every time I ate my toast
I thought the tooth would go.
But then I ate a candy,
A sticky toffee roll,
Now where my wobbly tooth was
There's nothing but a hole!


Wiggly Tooth

Once I had a little tooth
That wobbled every day;
When I ate and when I talked,
It wiggled every way.


I have a little space in the middle of my face
And in that space, there used to be a tooth.
It was little, it was white, and it just fell out one night.
And a fairy came and took it - that's the truth!
The fairy left me money when she took my tooth away-
Took it from the pillow it was under.
What do fairies want with teeth they get from underneath
My pillow as I'm sleeping? That, I wonder!


Oh, I lost a tooth,
Whatever shall I do?
I'm left with a window and my tongue is sticking through.
I laugh and I giggle each time I look at you!
Oh, I lost a tooth
Whatever shall I do?


My Tooth

My tooth fell out and left a space
So big my tongue can touch my face,
And every time I smile I show
The place where something used to grow.
I miss my tooth as you can guess
But now I have to brush one less!


I will put my tooth in a pouch
And on the pillow lay to sleep
In the morn in it I will peep
And find a gift for me to keep.


Out with the baby teeth
In with the new
Brush every day
And CHEW, CHEW, CHEW!


Brushing

(to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star")

Here's my toothpaste
Here's my brush
I won't hurry, I won't rush.
Working hard to keep teeth clean
Front and back and in between
When I brush for quite a while
I will have a happy smile.


The Toothbrush Song

(to the tune of "Row,Row, Row Your Boat")

Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Brush them everyday.
We put toothpaste on our brush
To help stop tooth decay.

Floss, floss, floss your teeth.
Floss them every day!
Using the string to clean between
Keeps the plaque away!

Clean, clean, clean your teeth.
Clean them every day!
Your teeth will sparkle for years to come
In the most beautiful way!

Brush, brush, brush your teeth.
Brush them every day!
Happy, healthy teeth you'll have
If it's done this way.


Brushing my Teeth

Up and down and round and round
I brush my teeth to keep them sound;
To keep them sound and clean and white
I brush them morning, noon and night.


Although He Didn't Like the Taste

Although he didn't like the taste,
George brushed his teeth with pickle paste.
Not ever was his mouth so clean,
Not ever were his teeth so green.

Arnold Lobel


Your teeth are important - they help you to chew,
They help you to smile and say, "How do you do?"
Be sure to take care of them morning and night
By brushing and flossing, you'll keep your teeth bright.


My Toothbrush

I have a little toothbrush.
I hold it very tight.
I brush my teeth each morning,
and then again at night.
          I go brush, brush, brush
          And rinse, rinse, rinse,
                    And then when they're all clean
                    I will blow you a kiss.

My Teeth

Can you see my teeth?
I use them to chew.
I chew things like carrots
so my teeth stay like new.

Can you see my teeth?
I use them to bite.
I bite things like apples
so my teeth will stay white.

Can you see my teeth?
I use them to speak.
I say "t" and "f"
every day of the week.

Can you see my teeth?
I use them to smile.
I brush until my grin
is as wide as a mile!
