Teeth: What Have They Done For You Lately?

Categories: Dental Health

Minneapolis cosmetic dentistry

Welcome to the Arbor Lakes Dental blog! Today we are going to explore the secret life of our teeth.

The shape of each tooth gives a clue to what it does. The incisors, or your front teeth, are sharp. They need to be because their job is to cut food, and their curvature helps move food inside the mouth.

Behind the incisors, you find the canine teeth. Their roots go far into the jaw bone because they are designed to hold onto food and tear through it.

Premolars, found just behind the canines, are flat on the surface. This allows them to crush your food as you chew. And, finally, in the very back are the molars. They are large and have nice, flat chewing surfaces that help them to grind food down into smaller, more digestible pieces.

I’m Dr. Jamie Sledd, a friendly
 Maple Grove dentist. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little more about the different teeth in your mouth.

If you are in the Champlin, Plymouth, or Osseo area and would like to make an appointment at my practice, Arbor Lakes Dental, please give us a call at (763)494-4443. We can schedule an appointment and tell you about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening.

If you’ve ever been interested in a smile makeover, we would love to discuss the possibilities with you. I want my Minneapolis dental patients to have healthy mouths and beautiful smiles. At Arbor Lakes Dental, we offer comprehensive dental services including: cosmetic dentistry, dental bridges, and gum disease testing and treatment.
