Canine teeth also called as cuspid or cornerstone is the pointed teeth present at the corner of the mouth. Canine teeth are adapted for tearing of food and various other functions. There is a total of four canine teeth present in the entire dental arch. Each present between incisors i.e. front teeth and premolar.
The first permanent tooth to erupt is usually the first molar, at 6 to 7 years of age. The other teeth, leaving the third molar erupt latest by 13 years of age. Keeping track of the eruption time through charts or games is a good way for parents and children to anticipate teething and eruption.
There are only four significant teeth types. These are the incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. You can quickly identify them in your mouth. As in the case of babies, premolars are absent. Rest all the teeth look similar in babies as well.
If someone asks you how many teeth do you humans have? Then the most accurate answer would be - it depends on the age group. Children and adults have different types of teeth. The number of teeth also varies. Children have 20 teeth, whereas adults have 32 teeth (including 4 wisdom teeth).
