value based questions

different types of teeth in our jaws have different functions, but they all work together to chew the food.

1.discuss the function of each types of teeth.

2.what inspiration do we learn from our teeth that have different functions.

There are four types of teeth in a jaw.

- It is a first type of tooth present in group as first four front teeth in each jaw. It has a single root.  It has a broad, straight biting edge and a flat front surface. It helps in cutting and biting the food.
Canine- It is a second type of tooth which is found between incisors and premolars. It is pointed in shape and has a single root. It helps in cutting and tearing the food.
Premolar- It is a third kind of tooth. It is present between molars and canines. It has a broad flat chewing surface. It is suitable for cutting, tearing and as well as crushing food. It has variable number of cusps. It has one or two roots.
Molar –It is a fourth kind of tooth found next to premolars. It has four or five cusps on its broad flatter chewing surface. Upper molars have three roots, lower ones just two.  They are used to crush and grind food.
Associated Value : The learner will be able to understand that in a system , different parts performing their individual functions altogether succeed to give the results. There is division of labour in multicellular organisms, that is different parts perform different function but as a system, they play a particular role.  Same way different types of teeth performing their individual function, succeed to help in chewing the food altogether.

dental formula for adult

upper half jaw /lower half jaw = (i=2/2 , c=1/1 , pm= 2/2 , m =3/3) x2

dental formula for child

upper half jaw /lower half jaw = (i=2/2 , c=1/1 , pm= 0/0 , m =2/2) x2
