Permanent teeth are the ones which come after the fall or when the deciduous teeth have not fallen but are erupted. They are the 2nd and last set of teeth that mammals can have during their lifetime.
These teeth are more calcified and stronger than the deciduous teeth as they are to be for life time and function for major time for mastication and chewing process. Here, the pre-molars also appear and the complete arch form has no gaps.
The permanent teeth are total of 32 in number, 8 in each quarter of mouth.
They are –
Central Incisors – 4
Lateral Incisors – 4
Canines – 4
Premolars – 8
Molars – 12
The 3rd molar is also called as the wisdom tooth. Permanent teeth start developing from the age of 6, and the presence or absense of deciduous teeth does not affect its development.

Hello Dr. Chettan:
I am 49 yrs and most of my teeth are loose even though I can use them for normal eating including meat, I feel they are no good. I have partial denture both upper and lower.
I was thinking of going for full teeth implants. No one seems to give me proper information. I do not like to have full dentures as it makes me feel old and I feel it is clumsy to remove.
I am financially ok, so I can afford it. Can you give me some thoughts on that?
I’m from bangladesh. I got a hole in my upper 8 no tooth and I got pain also. My Doctor says root canal can not be done. Most of all this tooth is in no use for eating.So he picked it up.
Is it really true that it is of no use
