Why you should know your teeth numbers and names

Your teeth numbers and names by the location in your mouth where they are located. As you can see from the image below, top teeth are numbered from left to right, starting with number 1 and ending with number 16. Bottom teeth are also numbered from left to right, starting with number 17 and ending with number 32 (In some individuals, there may be additional teeth that are named based on their position). Knowing this information can help you remember what you have lost during brushing or make sure that you brush all areas of your mouth while cleaning it.

The upper molars

Molars have a very distinct shape that separates them from other types of teeth. The upper molars are shaped like a person’s thumb with a squared top and rounded bottom. These molars are often referred to as cuspids. They have four major surfaces on them: lingual, buccal, palatal, and occlusal. The lingual surface is on top of the tooth while the buccal surface is on its side near where it meets up with another tooth or where it sits in your mouth against another tooth. Palatal refers to when one molar touches or hits up against another and occlusal relates to how a molar sits at rest in relation to other teeth chart numbered.

The lower molars

located in your lower jaw, they are used for chewing and grinding food. Your second molars, or twins as they are often called, were likely removed long ago. Now it is only these two—your third molars—that remain. These can appear sometime between ages 17 and 25 (on average around age 20) although it’s not uncommon to have them show up a bit later than that. As with many other things in life, timing is everything when it comes to losing your wisdom teeth!

If wisdom teeth don’t come through by age 21-22, doctors will usually suggest that they be extracted before permanent damage occurs to them or surrounding bone structures. See? Knowing your anatomy helps! The key here is to keep an eye on your mouth and make sure that if you do notice anything out of place, you go see a dentist right away. Waiting could lead to complications such as an infection or even gum disease. Knowledge is power;

The upper bicuspids

The two bicuspids that lie between your canines and molars are known as the upper bicuspids. In some cases, these teeth are referred to as canine premolars. If a tooth is extracted from a patient’s mouth, their dentist will likely refer to it by one of these two terms. No matter what they’re called, these six teeth play an important role in dental health.

The lower bicuspids

The most common lower bicuspid are #4, #8, and #11. These teeth are also known as canines (which is short for dog tooth) because of their pointed shape. The three most common upper bicuspids (#5, #13, and #14) are also known as lateral incisors because they lie near or alongside (i.e., to each side of) our central incisor (eye tooth). Bicuspids tend to be small in size compared to other permanent teeth and their colors vary widely from yellowish-white to bright white; they aren’t often spotted until a child’s permanent teeth start coming in around age 6-7. Since these teeth play an important role in chewing food and keeping it all together,

it’s important to keep them healthy! Brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste is recommended. However, if you have a chipped or broken bicuspid that’s causing pain when chewing on that side of your mouth, it’s time to see us! We may recommend taking X-rays first so we can see what exactly needs to be done—and then we’ll take care of it with one visit.

Are the canine teeth important?

The canine (also known as cuspid or eyetooth) teeth are not necessarily important. There is a reason for their existence, but in many cases they are either damaged or missing due to accidents and other things. For example, my upper set of canines were knocked out by a baseball bat when I was young, which isn’t necessarily an uncommon occurrence, especially if you’re younger. The good news is that they don’t seem to serve any real purpose other than making sure that all of your other teeth fit together properly; I have no idea what would happen if there weren’t at least two canine teeth on each side—wouldn’t it just look weird? So if yours are missing or damaged, don’t fret too much; they’re not essential.

The incisors in the bottom row

incisors are in pairs, which start with a canine tooth on each side. The right canine is known as #10, while its counterpart on the left is labeled #9. The next tooth up on both sides is a second incisor called #8, followed by two premolars (the number of these can vary), then three molars (the number of these can vary). So if you have one incisor missing in your mouth (it happens more often than you might think) that area would be referred to as 4,4 or left 4 and right 4. If another tooth has been extracted from that area it would just add a notation after that: 4,4 1, for example.

Where do wisdom teeth come in?

Most people have four wisdom teeth, though some may have as few as two or as many as six. After your second molars come in (and then later fall out), it’s time for those wisdom teeth to make their appearance—usually around age 17, 18 or 19. Your dentist will give you a heads up when they’re about to pop through, but most people don’t pay attention. If they do, they often miss it. So what happens if they don’t show up? The answer is simple: Nothing. Eventually, most of us end up with more room than we need in our mouths and that third molar will typically just stay where it is until nature makes its decision for us—sometimes hundreds of years later!

What about gaps between some of my teeth?

Make sure to take care of each tooth as if it’s precious! Make sure to brush them regularly with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss daily, and even talk to your dentist about using a plaque-removing mouthwash. Doing so will help keep your smile looking beautiful for years to come. And if any problems arise, make sure to contact your dentist immediately.

Take care of each tooth as if it’s precious!

While it’s good to treat each tooth individually, there are some general guidelines that can help. It’s important to note that these recommendations come from a professional organization, not just my dental practice, so they’re unbiased. With that in mind: 1) You need to brush twice a day for two minutes with fluoride toothpaste. 2) Floss at least once a day. 3) See your dentist regularly for checkups (I recommend every six months). That’s how you keep your teeth healthy for life!
