Every Picture Tells A Story, and So Does Every Tooth!

Battle Ground Full Mouth Reconstruction

June 28, 2024

It’s commonly known that most adults have 32 teeth, compared with 20 primary, or baby teeth. But fewer know the different types of teeth, and how they work together harmoniously to help us speak and eat efficiently, and of course, to form a wonderfully toothy grin! Our friendly family dentist at Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants would like to offer a brief primer on the different types of these tiny wonders, in the hope of encouraging our patients to give them all the “TLC” they deserve!

  • Those eight flat, sharp teeth in the front of your mouth are known as the incisors.These chisel-shaped teeth are terrific at ripping and biting off pieces of food. The incisors are especially helpful for foods like fruits and veggies.
  • Right next to your incisors are the four canines, also known as the cuspids or eye teeth. The canines are the longest teeth in our mouths, and are shaped for shedding and tearing apart tough foods like meat.
  • Directly behind those canines are eight premolars, sometimes referred to as bicuspids. Their combination of sharp ridges and a flat surface does double-duty, crushing and grinding our food. 
  • Way back in your mouth is where you’ll find the twelve molars, our biggest and strongest teeth.Their broad, flat surfaces are perfect for crushing and grinding food that’s ready to be swallowed and digested. Wisdom teeth, the last molars to erupt, sometimes need to be removed because there’s not enough space in the mouth.

It’s easy to see that each of these four distinctly different shaped teeth has its job to do in helping us chew and digest properly. That’s why our dentist 

Above & Beyond Dentistry & Implants urges our patients to brush and floss carefully between each of these 32 pearly whites, at least twice a day. And don’t forget to schedule regular professional cleanings and exams! Please call us today to schedule a visit!

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

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.
