What Are Maxillary Teeth?

Posted on May 13th, 2020

What are maxillary teeth?The upper teeth formed along the maxillary jawbone are called “maxillary teeth” and include the top incisors, molars, premolars, and canines. Dr. Malije Onwueme shares more information about maxillary teeth below.

Understanding the role of the upper teeth and caring for them properly is important in the fight against bacteria and infection in gum tissues and upper sinus cavities. Most maxillary teeth play specific roles in eating and digesting food, functioning as a set of silverware to break it down.

Because maxillary teeth are so close to maxillary sinus cavities, it is easy to confuse a sinus infection with an infected tooth. If you visit Westpark Pediatric Dentistry complaining of pain, they will determine which infection is present and either provide treatment or send you to your general physician.

If you have more questions about your child’s maxillary teeth—or ANY of their teeth—get in touch with us today!
