Permanent Canine 11-12th Yr

The permanent canine teeth usually appear in the eleventh or twelfth year of life and are part of the secondary, or permanent, teeth. The canine, or cuspid, teeth follow the lateral incisor and precede the first bicuspid (premolar) in the arrangement of the teeth from the midline of the mouth. The cuspids, canine teeth, are cone-shaped, and they are useful in grasping or tearing food.
