Hello everyone, just some time to do some quick revision on the types of teeth before our visit tomorrow from our school nurse. Let you knowledge shine like your teeth!!!
Unlike pythons and pelicans, humans cannot swallow food in one big gulp. Food must be broken down into smaller pieces before it can be swallowed. This function is performed by our hard, calcified structures called teeth.
Humans have different types of teeth that perform various functions such as cutting, tearing, shearing, grinding and crushing. The teeth are powered by the jaw muscles and lubrication is done with the help of saliva, which is produced in the salivary glands.
All Vertebrates possess teeth that vary in size, shape and numbers. Do your own research, click the hyperlink below:
