In the last blog post, we discussed all of the similarities that teeth have anatomically. But did you know there are many different kinds of teeth in your mouth? Here’s their classifications, starting from back to front:


Your four front teeth and your four front lower teeth are your incisors. These ones should be slightly sharp at the bottom, and are typically used for biting through and cutting food.


These are your “vampire teeth” – The sharp and pointy ones you find next to your incisors. These ones are used to tear through food.


Also known as bicuspids, these ones have two cusps on their top, which are used to chew, tear, and crush food.


Molars are your back most teeth, the ones that you have to spend a little more effort reaching back for when brushing! These ones have flatter services then premolars, and are used to grind and chew food.
