Eyeteeth are the four upper and lower canine or eye teeth. The eyeteeth are those teeth that are directly under the eye and are long pointed canines. The eyeteeth erupt at 14 to 20 months for the first set and at 11 to 12 years of age for the second set.
Canines are teeth that are present at the corners of the mouth. They are pointed teeth that help in shearing food. Next to the canines are 2 premolars which have broader grinding surfaces and therefore help in chewing and grinding of food.
