In this blog post from Priority Dental in Casper WY, we are going to explore the secret life of our teeth.
The shape of each tooth gives a clue to what it does. The incisors, or your front teeth, are sharp. They need to be because their job is to cut food and their curvature helps move food inside the mouth.
Behind the incisors, you find the canine teeth. Their roots go far into the jaw bone because they are designed to hold onto food and tear through it.
Premolars, found just behind the canines, are flat on the surface. This allows them to crush your food as you chew. And, finally, in the very back are the molars. They are large and have nice, flat chewing surfaces that help them to grind food down into smaller, more digestible pieces.
Another thing about your teeth: it’s essential to take good care of them. At Priority Dental in Casper WY, we offer comprehensive dental services including family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
