What are the types of teeth?

Learn about the different teeth we humans have.

Types of teeth

Humans have three main types of teeth:

1. Incisors

Incisors help you bite off and chew pieces of food.

2. Canines

These teeth are used for tearing and ripping food.

3. Molars

These help you crush and grind food.

Our teeth will change with age. So, the teeth you have when you are a baby aren't the same as the one's you will have as an adult.
