Teeth by palnk Teeth by palnk
Sometimes i see pictures with open mouthes and see like 3 premolars or only molars... so maybe some people eill find this usefull, its not a very complete study though. but still.

upper teeth:
central incisor, bigger than lateral, a bit tipped to the centre.
lateral a bit more tipped to the center than central incisor (sometimes people have this one tipped the othr way though),
canine is even more tipped. from the front you can see its curve surface,
then theres two premolars (bicuspids) or one... many times people have just one since sometimes they get one removed for orthodontics
then there are three molars in decreasing sizes. (did not draw the third since many people get them extracted)


lower:
the central incisor is slightly more narrow than the lateral, and the lateral has a little slope in its bitting edge.
canines are smaller thn upper ones and have a tipping to the centre.
then 2 premolar and three molars each one of them more tipped to the centre.
all of the inferior teeth are covered by upper ones :) when bitting.

there a lot more things about teeth positions, sizes and shapes, but this is the basic to do a very decent set of teeth :)

Great reference :D (I've started learning about bones and dentition in Forensic Archaeology so I looked at the teeth in this reference and felt nerdily happy about knowing a bit about them already :XD: :D )

of course, you could really mess with folks by posting an illo of the differences in bite of the three basic racial groups.

:iconpalnk:
palnk Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well theres only a tendency, but one type of bite does not apply all the pople of one certain race, too many genetic and phenotypic variables. many things can alter a bite XD

it is stable enough that it is a useful primary indicator in forensic osteology, according to Wm. M. Bass

palnk Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well i bet he knows more than i do :) but mybe more than bite type is the skeletal class and bone configuration, bite is a highly variable thing and gentics only play a partial role in its configuration.

oh, no doubt. additionally, in many parts of the world a "pure-blood" of any of the human breeds is a very rare specimen indeed.
