Humans use four different types of teeth:
• Incisors bite into the food you eat, help you pronounce words and support the lips.
• Canines cut or shear food, support the lips and help guide all the teeth into place when the upper and lower jaw come together.
• Premolars, or bicuspids, are used to chew food and maintain the height of the face. • Molars are used for chewing food and to maintain the height of the face.
