Different Types Of Teeth In Your Oral Cavity

By: Smileway Dental

Different types of teeth in your oral cavity

Incisors

  • Incisors are the front teeth present in the mouth
  • There are central and lateral incisors in both upper and lower jaw
  • Central incisors are larger than lateral incisors
  • Used to cut food when we are eating to break down food into smaller pieces

Canines

  • Canines are sharp teeth that resemble vampire teeth or fangs
  • Present in both upper and lower jaw
  • Canines are cornerstone of the mouth and is very important for tearing food
  • Canines are long tooth which makes them very strong and suitable to be used as supporting tooth
  • Canines are also very important for maintaining good aesthetics

Premolars

  • Premolars are present between molar and canines
  • Premolars are used to break down food further to help in digestion
  • Premolars may contain 1 or 2 roots

Molars

  • The biggest and bulkiest teeth in the oral cavity
  • Most effective teeth in grinding food and helps us digest food better
  • There are 12 molars in the oral cavity but some people may have less
  • Molars may have 2 to 3 roots which makes it very stable and strong

Each type of teeth aids in breaking down food and maintains good esthetics of the face. If one of the teeth were to be lost due to unforeseen circumstances, the teeth will need to be replaced to return all teeth to its original effective state. When all teeth are present in the oral cavity, we are able to eat efficiently and maintain our overall health as well as maintaining or even improving our esthetics and appearances. At Smileway Dental Clinic, we aim to preserve and create smiles that matter.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very cleanπŸ‘πŸ‘. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
