Molars

The 4 front teeth are the central and lateral incisors. Next to the incisors are the cuspids.

Next to the cuspids are the 8 premolars or bicuspids.

The final 12 teeth are the molars.

The molars have pits and fissures that can harbor cariogenic bacteria and are commonly the site of dental caries.

For more information, refer to the images in the Chapter 1 Photo Gallery.
