Are you getting 'long in the tooth' or long in the tooth?
Tijana writes, "We have all heard of the phrase 'getting long in the tooth.' We use it when talking about horses and humans. They say you can tell a horse's age by looking at their teeth. While we could probably say the same about humans, I hope that as people become more educated about their oral health and overall health, they will be able to defy this logic and keep their teeth in great shape well into their old age. In any case, people often say they are 'getting long in the tooth' to mean they are growing older."
