A tooth is divided into 2 general parts: the crown, which is visible, white area of the tooth, and the root, which you cannot see. The root spreads below the anchors and gum line the tooth into the bone. Your teeth contain 4 types of tissues and each does a different work.
Human’s teeth have 2 sets of teeth, baby teeth and then actual teeth, which develop in levels. Although the timing is different, the growth of each of these sets of teeth is similar.
Teeth support you chew you food, making it simple to digest. Each kind of tooth has a a little different shape and functions. Kinds of teeth contain:
Incisors: incisors are the 8 teeth in the center and front of your month. These are teeth that you use to take bits of your food. Incisors are generally the teeth to erupt and at approximately 6 month of age of your first set of teeth, and between six and eight years of age of your adult set.
Canines: Your 4 canines are the next kind of teeth to develop. These are your sharpest teeth and used for tearing and ripping food apart. Initial canines commonly appear between 15 and 20 months of age with the higher canines coming in just ahead of the lower canines. In stable teeth, the sort is reversed. Junior canines erupt around age nine with the upper arriving between eleven and twelve years of age.
Premolars: Bicuspids, premolars, are used for grinding and chewing food. You have 4 premolars on each side of your mouth, 2 on the upper and 2 on the lower jaw. The initial premolars appear around age ten and next premolars arrive about a year later.
Molars: First molars are used for grinding and chewing food. These appear between twelve and fifteen months age. These molars, also called as decidious molars, are changed by the first and second actual premolars (four lower and four upper. The actual molars do not change, but come in behind the initial teeth. The primary molars erupt approximately six years of age while the next molars emerge in between 11 and 14 years of age.
Third molars: 3rd molars are generally called as wisdom teeth. These are the final teeth to grow and do not normally emerge until age of eighteen and twenty, some persons never grow 3rd molars at all. For those who perform, these molars may lead to crowding and need to be deleted.
