The teeth are the hardest substances in the human body. Besides being essential for chewing, the teeth play an important role in speech. A normal adult mouth has 32 teeth, which (except for wisdom teeth) have erupted by about age 13. It has the function to mechanically break down items of food by cutting and crushing them in preparation for swallowing and digesting. More human teeth diagrams are provided below to allow you see the structure of the teeth more closely.
Humans have four types of teeth: incisors, canines, premolars, and molars, each with a specific function. The incisors cut the food, the canines tear the food and the molars and premolars crush the food. The roots of teeth are embedded in the maxilla (upper jaw) or the mandible (lower jaw) and are covered by gums. Teeth are made of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
