  • Human tooth
    The human teeth function is mechanically breaking down items of food by cutting and crushing them in preparation for swallowing and digestion.
  • Tooth brushing
    Tooth brushing is the act of scrubbing teeth with a toothbrush equipped with toothpaste.
  • Incisor
    Incisors (from Latin incidere, "to cut") are the front teeth present in most heterodont mammals.
  • Tooth
    A tooth (plural teeth) is a small, calcified, whitish structure found in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and used to break down food.
  • Wisdom tooth
    A wisdom tooth or third molar is one of the three molars per quadrant of the human dentition.
  • Calculus (dental)
    In dentistry, calculus or tartar is a form of hardened dental plaque.
  • Malocclusion
    A malocclusion is a misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the two dental arches when they approach each other as the jaws close.
  • Barotrauma
    Barotrauma is physical damage to body tissues caused by a difference in pressure between a gas space inside, or in contact with the body, and the surrounding fluid.
  • Premolar
    The premolar teeth, or bicuspids, are transitional teeth located between the canine and molar teeth.
  • Canine tooth
    In mammalian oral anatomy, the canine teeth, also called cuspids, dog teeth, fangs, or (in the case of those of the upper jaw) eye teeth, are relatively long, pointed teeth.
  • Deciduous teeth
    Deciduous teeth are now more commonly known as primary teeth.
  • Dentin
    Dentin (/ˈdɛntᵻn/) (American English) or dentine (/ˈdɛnˌtiːn/ or /ˌdɛnˈtiːn/) (British English) (Latin: substantia eburnea) is a calcified tissue of the body and, along with enamel, cementum, and pulp, is one of the four major components of teeth.
  • Molar (tooth)
    The molars or molar teeth are large, flat teeth at the back of the mouth.
  • Pulp (tooth)
    The dental pulp is the part in the center of a tooth made up of living connective tissue and cells called odontoblasts.
  • Toothpaste
    Toothpaste is a paste or gel dentifrice used with a toothbrush as an accessory to clean and maintain the aesthetics and health of teeth.
  • Tooth enamel
    Tooth enamel is one of the four major tissues that make up the tooth in humans and many other animals, including some species of fish.
  • Ohaguro
    Ohaguro (お歯黒) is a custom of dyeing one's teeth black.
  • Cementum
    Cementum is a specialized calcified substance covering the root of a tooth.
  • Alveolar process
    The alveolar process (/ˈælviːələr/) (alveolar bone) is the thickened ridge of bone that contains the tooth sockets (dental alveoli) on bones that hold teeth.
  • Periodontium
    The periodontium is the specialized tissues that both surround and support the teeth, maintaining them in the maxillary and mandibular bones.
  • Root canal
    A root canal is the anatomic space within the root of a tooth.
  • Hyperdontia
    Hyperdontia is the condition of having supernumerary teeth, or teeth that appear in addition to the regular number of teeth.
  • Toothcomb
    A toothcomb (also tooth comb or dental comb) is a dental structure found in some mammals, comprising a group of front teeth arranged in a manner that facilitates grooming, similar to a hair comb.
  • Horse teeth
    Horse teeth refers to the dentition of equine species, including horses and donkeys.
  • Dentition
    Dentition pertains to the development of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth.
  • Diastema
    A diastema (plural diastemata) is a space or gap between two teeth.
  • Amelogenin
    Amelogenin is the name for a series of closely related proteins involved in amelogenesis, the development of enamel.
  • Tooth fusion
    The phenomenon of tooth fusion arises through union of two normally separated tooth germs, and depending upon the stage of development of the teeth at the time of union, it may be either complete or incomplete.
