The Different Types of Teeth in a Human Mouth

Humans actually have four different types of teeth, and each has a distinctly different function:   

     -Incisors (Front Teeth) for cutting off bites of food.

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

     -Bicuspids (have two points) to tear and crush food.

     -Molars (Back Teeth) they have large, relatively flat surfaces to crush and grind food.

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

Remember:  if you take care of your teeth, they will take care of you!

Keep Smiling!
