The Canine teeth are the long, pointed teeth used for grabbing hold of and tearing apart foods, also called "cuspids", "dogteeth" or "fangs". Species that feature them, such as humans and dogs, usually have four, two in the top jaw, two in the lower, on either side of the Incisors.

Lance canines, reverse scissor bite of the incisors, lower canines ulcerating the roof of the mouth.
The lower canine must continue to erupt and therefore the crown of this tooth is often found on the inside of the upper canine in the roof of the mouth, when the jaws are shut.
Canines, the sharp "fanglike" teeth, total four; two on top (one to each side of the set of incisors) and two on the bottom.
