Learn more about the parts of human dental system using these hands-on dental diagrams in best quality! In these teeth diagrams, the parts of our dental system are explained in pictures. We’ll start by giving you the baby dental diagram below.
Baby’s teeth are temporary. Take a look at the dental diagram above, babies grow a temporary set of twenty deciduous teeth (eight incisors, four canines, and eight molars) between the ages of six months and three years. A normal adult mouth has 32 teeth, which (except for wisdom teeth) have erupted by about age 13. Teeth are classified into four major groups: incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. Follow our teeth diagrams to know more about the human dental structure.
Incisors are chisel-shaped teeth found in the front of the mouth and have a flat apical surface for cutting food into smaller bits. Meanwhile, canine teeth, also known as cuspids, are sharply pointed, cone-shaped teeth that are used for ripping tough material like meat. They flank the incisors on both sides. Premolars (bicuspids) and molars are large, flat-surfaced teeth found in the back of the mouth. Peaks and valleys on the flat apical surface of premolars and molars are used for chewing and grinding food into tiny pieces.
