Everyone knows about teeth, but not everyone knows all there is to know about their choppers. One reason is that there are many aspects to our pearly whites, from baby teeth (technically called primary teeth) to permanent teeth.
We at the office of Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants are oral healthcare experts and understand “all things dental.” In emphasizing the importance of preventive dental care, we are dedicated to helping every patient enjoy the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile. We provide a comprehensive program of preventive care designed to protect your teeth and reduce your risk of dental disease.
Your 20 primary teeth are in place between ages 2½ and 3. Between the ages of 6 and 12, these primary teeth begin to fall out to make way for the permanent set of teeth. Most adults have 32 permanent teeth.
Teeth are versatile in their names and uses.
Central incisors and lateral incisors are the eight at the front (four on top, four on bottom) of your mouth. Their jobs are to slice and dice food into manageable sizes.
Four cuspids (aka canines) flank the incisors. They grip and tear food.
Four premolars (aka bicuspids, because they have two points) are next to the canines and are permanent teeth. Their job is to crush what you eat. Small bits of food are easier to digest than larger pieces.
Eight molars are also used for chewing and grinding.
The four third molars are known as wisdom teeth and may need to be extracted because they’re impacted or crowding the rest of your teeth.

Going to the dentist is rarely something you look forward to, however Dr. Low and his team do a fantastic job of making sure it's not something you have to dread. Over five years of service, I've received root canals, fillings, crowns, deep root scaling - you name it; and not only has all of the work held strong, the experience was the best I've had anywhere. The staff treats you like family, and they're always friendly, personable, and concerned for your comfort. Hard to imagine there's anywhere better in Clark County
I've being going to Above & Beyond for many years now and continue to get amazing service. The recepetionists, hygienists, and Dr. Low are professional and very friendly. They explain questions or concerns thoroughly and I have never felt pressured when making decisions.
Amazing team who really keep my personal goals of quality care in prolonging the life of my teeth and setting attainable goals to get them back to great health. They paid close attention to my hopes of keeping it affordable since I’m a single mom of one, my teeth have been the last of my priorities for the last three years due to finances. Thank you Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants! Looking forward to a life long relationship with you all.
