The function of the teeth is more than just to chew food into tiny pieces. They also provide shape to the mouth and face and are important components in producing speech. To know more about the anatomy of our teeth, make use of these teeth diagrams hat we have collected below in high definition and quality. The first teeth diagram is posted right below.
Posted above is the teeth diagram of a baby. Even though babies are born without teeth, but 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. More human teeth diagrams are as follows.
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.
