Demon Dentists!

In Science today, we investigated our teeth. We look into our friend’s mouth and also ate some food to explore which different teeth do what! Adults have four different types of teeth:

  • incisors
  • molars
  • premolars
  • canines

Do you know what each of these different types of teeth are used for?

We then made a model of a set of teeth using plasticine and marshmallows. We were very tempted to eat our teeth!

Did you know?

Sharks lose teeth each week. They get new teeth when they lose the old ones. They may have over 20,000 teeth in a lifetime.



Why is it important to brush your teeth for 2 minutes, twice daily?
