So, I imagine this expression sounds a little weird; after all, how much skin do you have on your teeth? Well, English speakers do—that’s how we pronounce that “R”. Just kidding!
So, what does this expression mean?
Actually, this expression refers to the fact that there is no skin on the teeth, so if you get something by the skin of your teeth, it means you got it by the thinnest of margins.
