A Guide to Your Teeth!

Brush and floss daily, avoid staining food and drink, schedule regular appointments with your Cupertino dentist, but amid your extensive dental treatment plan, are you curious about what exactly is going on in there? You know you’ve got molars, maybe canine teeth, maybe you’ve seen you X-rays and talked about tooth decay and how to avoid it, but it’s also important for you to be well-informed about each and every one of your permanent teeth so that you know what exactly Dr. Browning is talking about when you discuss oral care.

Follow this guide to learn more about your teeth so you can feel more informed next time you visit Cupertino dentist, Dr. Browning:

Adults have 32 permanent teeth, and those teeth are numbered in a clockwise fashion from the dentist’s perspective. Teeth 1-16 are the top half of your mouth, while 17-32 are the lower half (including your wisdom teeth!) This means that your wisdom teeth are numbers 1, 16, 17, and 32. Your front, most visible teeth are 6-11 on the top and 22-27 on the bottom. Your “eye” teeth or canines, (the sharp, vampire-like teeth!) are numbers 6, 11, 22, and 27.


 Consider the benefits of being comfortable with the numbers of your teeth next time you go in for dental treatments, especially if you’re having cosmetic work done. Being able to communicate effectively could mean becoming more comfortable and relaxed before you undergo treatment.
