How many different types of teeth do we have?

We have four different types of teeth, each with a different function:

Incisors for cutting off bites of food.

Cuspids (sometimes called canines because of their long sharp points) for tearing food

Bicuspids (with two points) to tear and crush food

Molars with large relatively flat surfaces to crush and grind food.

Now you know each of your teeth serve a purpose be sure to take care of them with check-ups at least twice a year. (:
