Teeth Names and Numbers

Teeth Names and Numbers

When your dentist or your hygienist tells you about a cavity on your teeth, he or she identifies the tooth by a name or a number. For example, your dentist may say that you have a cavity on your first molar on the left side, also called tooth #26.

This numbering system is also used by dental insurance companies on requests for claims or estimates of treatment costs.
