Dentition

A term that refers to how teeth are arranged in the mouth and their development over time. The human mouth has four distinct types of teeth: Incisors (used for cutting), Canines (used for tearing), the Premolar and Molar (used for grinding). Each type of mammal has a dental forumla that represents dentition for one side of the mouth. The forumla is written in two sets, representing the upper and the lower teeth. The forumla for human dentition is:

2.1.2.3
2.1.2.3

This represents 2 Incisors, 1 Canine, 2 Premolars and 3 Molars for one side of the mouth.
