Summary Information: Canines

Canines: Canines are a type of tooth and are a part of the dentition and the digestive system. Normally there are four pointed canines in the adult mouth. The function of the canine is to grip and pierce the tougher foods. By doing these actions, the canines begin the process of ingestion and digestion.

Conditions that afflict the incisors include broken/missing teeth, dental caries, periodontal disease, developmental abnormalities, dental attrition, and dental erosion.
