Tooth and Eye

Tooth and Eye?

Ever wonder about "Canine" or "Eye" teeth?

The longest and sharpest teeth in our mouth are called "canines" due to their resemblance to a dog’s fangs. They are sometimes referred to as "eye" teeth because of their alignment under the eyes. Medically, these teeth are called "cuspids". No matter what you call them- don't forget to brush them :)
