Have you ever heard Dr. Komyathy use numbers to talk about your teeth?  These numbers correspond to a certain tooth and are used to quickly understand where a tooth is in relation to the other teeth in your mouth. This universal numbering system makes it a lot easier for dentists to understand which tooth needs dental work or which tooth is more sensitive than saying, "It's the pointy one on the left that shows when I smile."  Fortunately, dentists understand that not many people care to understand the numbering system, but if you're interested, try using it at your next appointment!
