At The Dentist
This week I had to visit my dentist as I had a cracked tooth. I was chewing on nuts when the tooth cracked! Tune in to today’s episode where we learn new vocab, new phrases, new words (the actual names of the teeth that I also didn’t know!) and learn new conversation starters. For some reason, my dentist loves to engage in chitchat! Enjoy today’s show :)

Today I’m going to tell you about my recent dentist experience and you’ll have a chance to repeat a couple of phrases after me.
By the way amigos, I’m testing this new segment so bear with me (please be patient) until I find out how it’s going to work.
You’ll learn a couple of new phrases but also some new conversation starters.
Because as it appears my dentist loves to make small chitchat. Loves to talk.
Today’s episode will be particularly useful to you if you are a dentist or if you need to go and visit a dentist soon and you need to learn a couple of new dentist expressions in English.
So, my dentist visit was kind of urgent.
About a couple of months ago, I made myself a nice breakfast with muesli, almond milk and raw nuts.
I had different types of nuts in my breakfast. There were walnuts, almond nuts and Brazilian nuts.
As I was enjoying my nutty breakfast, I remember clearly, I was chewing on my left side of the jaw and I bit hard on one nut and felt something went horribly wrong.
It appeared one of my back teeth cracked.
A synonym for cracked is “broken”. To crack is a regular verb.
Oh and do you know what the plural for tooth is?
A baby has one tooth. An adult has many …. Teeth. It’s a long “Iiiiii”
So one of my teeth cracked.
It was a back tooth, I believe this is called a molar tooth.
I had to look up the actual names for teeth because I didn’t know exactly what they were. I am not a dentist. I expect my dentist to know this stuff.
So if you open your mouth, the far back teeth are called molars and then as come closer to the front of your teeth, you see pre-molars, canines (canines help us chew meat) and the very front teeth are called incisors.
Great, now we are qualified to become dentists! Ok, just joking. Of course, you need proper education to work as a dentist.
Are you following me so far amigos?
