A bit of trivia for you…
Anatomy of Canine Teeth
Dogs have multiple types of teeth. A dog will have incisors, canines, premolars and molars, each with a different purpose.
Dogs have 6 incisors on both the upper and lower jaw. These teeth are used for nibbling, nipping, biting and for grooming themselves and other dogs.
There are a total of 4 canines in a dog’s mouth; 2 on the upper jaw and 2 on the lower jaw. Canines are mainly used for tearing and shredding flesh and occasionally for defense.
Behind the canines are the premolars. Dogs have 4 premolars lining each side of both the upper and lower jaw, totaling 16 premolars in the mouth. Premolars are used for shredding and chewing.
An adult dog will have 2 molars on each side on the upper jaw and 3 molars on each side of the lower jaw. Molars are used for crushing things such as bone.
