Canine - upper teeth

Other Terms: Cuspid, Dens caninus, Dents canines, Hunde- Zahn, Diente canino

Description

These differ from the incisors in possessing larger crowns, and thick, long roots. The crown ends in a blunt point, and the cutting edge slopes away on each side. The edge that slopes toward the premolar is the longer, and causes the crown to be asymmetrical. The lingual surface presents a median and two lateral ridges that converge toward the well-marked cingulum, which is often produced into a distinct cusp.

Description

Canine tooth Canine teeth are located behind the incisors. They have a pointed crown and one root. They function to bite and tear food. There are two upper and two lower canine teeth.
