Tooth Chart Positioning

Incisor Teeth

On the dental chart, incisors are located in the front of the mouth and have sharp, thin edges for cutting.  Their use is to incise or cut food and the appearance tends to have a shovel-shaped appearance.

Cuspid Teeth

Cuspids, also referred to as canines, are at the angles of the mouth on the tooth chart. Each has a single cusp and is designed for cutting and tearing.

Bicuspid Teeth

Bicuspids, also referred to as premolars, are similar to the cuspids. They have two cusps used for cutting and tearing, and a wider surface to bite and crush food.

Molars

Molars are located in the back of the mouth.  Their size gradually gets smaller from the first to third molar.  Each molar has four or five cusps, is shorter and more rounded in shape than other teeth and has a broad surface for grinding and chewing solid food.
