49 — Proprioception

Proprioception is the brain’s ability to know where all parts of the body are in space and time. It is the reason we can walk without falling and know when a strawberry seed has lodged between our teeth. Understanding proprioception can help people keep their dental implants healthy and also help them determine whether or not they are having gum pain or a toothache.
