medical health dental health# What is the dental formula for men?

Last Updated: 6th April, 2020

**teeth**in each half of the upper and the lower jaw. The entire formula is multiplied by two to represent the total number of

**teeth**. Each half of the upper jaw and the lower jaw has 2 incisors, 1 canine, and 2

**molars**.

**Premolars**are absent in milk

**teeth**hence the zero.

Likewise, what is the dental formula of man?

Human: deciduous **teeth**: 212/212; adult = 2123/2123. Both childhood **molars** are replaced by adult **premolars**. Adult total is double the formula = 32.

what is the dental formula for Lion? The whole dental formula for a lion is I=3/3 C=1/1 P=3/2 M=1/1. I= **incisors**, C= canines, P= **premolars** and M= **molars**, meaning a lion has 30 permanent teeth. The dentition of any animal is a structural adaptation to its diet and therefore directly related to its feeding, foraging and hunting behaviour.

Consequently, what is the dental formula of sheep?

Sheep have 32 permanent teeth with a dental formula of 2 (**incisors** 0/4, premolars 3/3, and **molars** 3/3). The temporary **incisor teeth** erupt sequentially at approximately weekly intervals from birth. The three temporary premolars erupt within two to six weeks.

How do you read a dental formula?

It is written as an expression of the number of each type of tooth in one side of the upper jaw over the number of **teeth** in one side of the lower jaw. The letters correspond to the type of **teeth** (I = Incisor, C = Canine, P = Premolar, M = Molar).
