Why do I have different types of teeth?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Why do I have different types of teeth?       
Why do I have different types of teeth? Teeth have different shapes so they can carry out different jobs. Incisor teeth at the front of the mouth are flat and shaped like chisels. You use them to cut your food. The canines are the pointed teeth just behind the incisors, and you use them to tear food.

The back teeth, called molars and premolars, are flattened so they can grind the food into small pieces ready for swallowing.

What are teeth made of?

Teeth are made of a hard material that is similar to bone. They are covered with shiny enamel to protect them from attack by bacteria. Teeth are hollow, and contain blood vessels and nerves. They are rooted into the jaw.

Teeth start to grow before you are born, and begin to appear through the gums at about the age of six months. The adult teeth begin to replace a child's milk teeth at about six years of age.
