  Reasons Why the Piltdown Canine Tooth and Mandible Could Not Belong to Piltdown Man   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The immaturity of the tooth agrees with that of the upper canine tooth as further evidence that the mandible, as well as the canine, belonged to an ape skull.
The deduction made from the character of the lingual facet that the tooth was associated with a fairly wide diastema and with the anthropoid and non-human type of premaxilla, and for this reason did not belong to the human skull, was confirmed by mounting it in the ape skull.
Here the hypertrophied canines restrain lateral movement to the extent that it is impossible, when the teeth are in closed sliding occlusion, for the buccal cusps of the lower cheek teeth to cross outside the crests of the buccal cusps of the upper teeth.

 North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association: Canine Dentition
Each tooth is divided into 3 parts: the crown is the exposed part which protrudes above the gumline; the neck which is the slightly constricted area just at the level of the gum; and the root which is usually embedded in sockets in the jawbone.
Tooth placement is affected by genetics, jaw structure, lip structure, the tongue, other teeth - deciduous (“baby teeth”) and/or permanent, as well as the habits of the dog such as carrying a training dummy, chewing on kennel fencing or crate wire, or continual rock fetching.
The mandibular canine or “fang” tooth should occlude buccal (toward the cheek tissue) to the gingiva of the maxilla and should divide the space between the maxillary canine tooth and the maxillary third incisor.

 Canine tooth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In oral anatomy, the canine teeth, also called cuspids, dogteeth, fangs, or (in the case of those of the upper jaw) eye teeth, are relatively long, pointed teeth, evolved (and used, in most species where they remain prominent) primarily for firmly holding food in order to tear it apart, and occasionally as weapons.
Most species that develop them normally have four per individual, two in the upper jaw and two in the lower, separated within each jaw by its incisors; humans and dogs are examples.

Canine teeth are more important than some other teeth for the correct function of the teeth and also for appearance.
Canines can fail to grow completely on one or both sides; this can either leave a gap between the incisors and premolars or the deciduous canine tooth will be retained, which in time might look too narrow or short.
The exposure of the tooth involves a small operation in the palate of the mouth, which is often performed under general anaesthesia.

The mandibular canine interdigitates evenly between the maxillary corner (third) incisor and canine tooth.
Base narrowed canines may be due to a structural narrowing of the mandible, or failure of the primary teeth to exfoliate prior to the eruption of the adult canine teeth.
It is important to note the smooth gingival topography (surface features of the gingiva as it flows from tooth to tooth).  Generally, as periodontal disease progresses the surface features become irregular and the even flow from tooth to tooth is lost.

The canine tooth often remains buried or may grow behind the other teeth in the roof of the mouth.
The buried canine may damage the adjacent teeth by eating away or resorbing part of their roots in an effort to find a path into the mouth.
If the buried canine is in a position where exposure and orthodontic treatment is not possible but there is adequate space between the other teeth, transplantation may be considered.

 Common animal dentistry problems
The most common teeth that are broken are the canine (fang) teeth in the dog and the cat, and the upper fourth premolar (large tooth on the top in the back) in dogs.
After the tooth is fractured, bacteria from the mouth will gain access to the pulp (root canal) and infect the tooth.
For the canine tooth in dogs and cats, and the upper fourth premolar and lower first molar in dogs this is the last option.

 The LA Times, 53
That the jaw and tooth were those of an ape has been maintained before now by several distinguished anthropologists, but they have always assumed them to be genuine fossils, and have merely thought that, though found in association with the cranium fragments, they had wrongly been presumed to belong to the same creature.
It therefore became evident that the jaw-bone and canine tooth, since they were not those of any recent type of man, must be those of an immature ape (whether chimpanzee or orang is not determinable in immaturity) and could not therefore represent any animal native in contemporary England.
The ape's jaw-bone and tooth that had been falsely associated with the human cranium were so entirely out of character that, even allowing for different parts of the human skull having evolved at different rates, it had become increasingly difficult to reconcile them with the evidence since found elsewhere.

Got her up into the light and discovered she had torn the entire tooth, root and all, out of the socket and it was hanging there by some gum tissue, parallel to the jawbone.
A friend of mine is a dentist and she tried to put the tooth back in, but was unable to, so we rushed her to a nearby emergency clinic.
Turns out even if they had wanted to reseat the tooth and see if it would reattach it wouldn't have been possible, becase she also broke the jaw bone that is around the socket.

 Good occlusal practice in children's dentistry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
If the canines are veering off from the normal path of eruption the primary canines should be extracted in order to encourage their permanent successors to erupt in the correct position.
If one primary canine is mobile but the other is firm and the permanent canine is palpable under the mucosa the firm primary canine should be extracted to allow eruption of the successor.
The results of this type of injury to the tooth remaining unrestored are over-eruption of the opposing tooth, and less obviously the damaged tooth may tilt buccally because there is reduced lip control.

Jaime was naturally (congenitally) missing a lateral incisor (the smaller tooth next to the main front teeth) on one side, his canine tooth had shifted into the position of the missing tooth and a primary canine (baby tooth) was still present even though he was nearly middle aged.
The challenge for this cosmetic dentistry case was to get a durable solution to Jaime's appearance problem without the expense of braces, surgery, or capping all of his front teeth.
The result was to lengthen, fill the spaces between, and correct the pointed canine where a square lateral incisor should be.
