Teeth names by location
Teeth names places are in each quadrant of the mouth. Each of the quadrants has eight actual teeth namely: two incisors, one cuspid, two bicuspids, and three molars. The middle incisor is placed on the side of the middle because it is centrally located in the arch. Beside the middle incisor is the lateral incisor. It is tracked by the cuspid and 2 biscuspid (the 1st and the 2nd bicuspid. The last 3 molars tracked the 2nd bicuspid. Also, teeth are placed by referring to them as either posterior or anterior. The anterior teeth are placed in the face of the mouth (the cuspids and incisors). They are also able to be seen when a person smiles. On the other hand, the posterior teeth are placed at the mouth back (molars and bicuspids).
Teeth names in English
Dentists have assigned each tooth with name hence, teeth titles in English. Cuspids are identical with canines while bicuspids are also called as premolars. 6 year molar is also known as actual molar. The 12 year molar is used synonymously with 2nd actual molar while the wisdom teeth (so known as because of their end eruption) are known as 3rd molars. The teeth in the face of the mouth such as lateral incisors, incisors and canines are known as anterior teeth. Posterior teeth contain of teeth placed in the mouth back and they are called as molars and premolars. The mandibular is the title given to the teeth in the lower jaw, while maxillary is the name of group teeth in the upper jaw.
