What are Incisors?

Among the 32 teeth, each has its own function in the chewing and eating process.

Adult teeth include incisors, canines, premolars, and molars.
Incisors (8 total) – Incisors are the middlemost four front teeth present in the upper and lower jaws
They are characterized by a single root and sharp incisal edge. The two incisors present on either side of the midline are known as central incisors, while the two adjacent teeth to the central incisors are known as the lateral incisors.
The main function of the incisors is cutting & holding the food, and also help us to sense the texture and kind of food you eat.
