The mount consists of several parts: including tongue, gums, teeth, lips, cheeks, palate, and floor of the mouth. The teeth are held within the jaw bones and serve several vital functions beyond permitting you to chew. Your teeth permit you to speak clearly and properly, and contribute to your facial appearance and shape. Children generally have 20 primary teeth and start to grow their first actual teeth by age 6. Adults typically grow 32 actual teeth.
Names of lower teeth in human mouth
The area of the tooth nearest to the tongue is referred as the lingual surface. For the face teeth, the area nearest to the lip is known as labial surface. For the back teeth (premolars and molars), the area that faces the checks is known as buccal surface, and the chewing place is known as occlusal surface.
There are different kinds of actual teeth, each of which performs a unique function.
Canines: The canine teeth are the quick teeth placed on either part of the incisors side. Canine teeth (also called as cuspids) job combine with the incisors to bite and tear food.
Lateral incisors: The 4 lateral incisors are placed next to the middle incisors on both arches, one on either side. These teeth have fast incisal edges used for tearing food.
Central Incisors: The middle incisors are the face teeth. Adults have 4 middle incisors; 2 on the lower and 2 on the upper arches. These teeth are fast and shaped like a chisel for cutting food.
Premolars: The premolars (also called as bicuspids) and the 8 teeth placed next to the cuspids; 2on each side of the mouth, 4 on the lower arches and 4 on the upper arches. These teeth are little than the molars and have 2 cusps on the biting location for crushing and tearing food. The premolars nearest to the incisors are known as the initial premolars, while the ones nearest to the molars are known as the 2nd premolars.
Molars: Molars are the big teeth with 4 cusps placed in the mouth back behind the premolars. Adults have 12 molars, with 6 in the lower and 6 in the upper arches; 3 on each side of the mouth. Molars have flat, wide surfaces for chewing, biting, and grinding food.
Wisdom teeth: which are added among the molars, are the final 4 molars that most adults grow. These teeth are placed in the extremely back of the mouth, 2 in the upper and 2 in the lower arches. Wisdom teeth generally erupt during the teen years but can grow at any time. Not all wisdom teeth need extraction. Anyway, due to the danger of infection, overcrowding, or misalignment, your dentist may plan that your wisdom teeth should be deleted.
The gingival is the general tissue in the mouth called as the gums that covers the bone gripping the teeth in location. The gingival surrounds the teeth and grips the jaw bone, making a security barrier.
