Teeth


The complete and orderly arrangement of several teeth is designated as denture, that is, denture refers to a group of teeth located in the oral cavity in a precise order according to their form and function, thanks to this it is They can mention two types of denture: the denture “milk” or temporary denture and permanent denture.

This replacement in the denture is caused by the formation of the permanent teeth in the internal cavities of the gum, just below the temporary teeth, and thus, as they progressively form, they push the temporary teeth outwards, tearing at their Sometimes the root of the same, in such a way that the baby teeth, as they do not have a union with the gum, fall off. The transition process between both dentures is painless (without pain) and it does not turn out to be annoying either, the only effect is produced in the facial aesthetics of the patient since the space of the gum remains vice while the permanent tooth finishes emerging, this final denture It is composed of a group of 32 dental pieces.

As initially mentioned, the group of teeth that make up the denture will be positioned in an orderly manner. This arrangement will be influenced by their function and shape. Thanks to this, four areas can be classified within the denture, which are: incisive area , these are located in the middle and frontal area of ​​the denture, they have a thin, fine shape with a flat surface, their function is to produce the cutting of food and they are characterized by being a set of 8 (four upper and lower ) teeth joined to the gum by a single root; canine area, have the function of producing the tearing of cut food, due to this they have a pointed shape just like the incisors are attached to the gum by a single root.

The teeth are conjugated by a total of 4 canines (two upper and lower); premolar and molar area, they have the same function to achieve the complete grinding of food, the only difference between them arises in their shape and appearance, the premolars have 2 points and two roots are only seen in the final dentition, while the molars have 3 points and 2 to 3 roots, their appearance is noticeable in temporary and permanent teeth.
