Mammalian dentition: specialised form and function

This film looks at mammalian dentition in detail. Tooth form can be intricately linked to diet and other requirements. Here we examine the various types of tooth in detail and show how they have each become adapted for specialised diets. Knowing about the different types of molar for example can allow us to make deductions about the diet of an animal. This information can be very useful when trying to identify an animal’s family or species from its skull.
