Key to the Figure of the present Eleventh Chapter, and its Characters

In this figure are represented the teeth on one side of the upper and lower jaw. Since the arrangement of either side is the same, it suffices to picture the teeth of one side extracted from the jaws. Should one wish to study the teeth still fixed in the jaws, the figures of the preceding chapter show the lower series, while the third and fifth figures of the sixth chapter show the upper set, and the fourth figure of that chapter clearly shows the sockets into which the teeth are fitted. We have carefully removed the teeth of the upper jaw from the skull that we represented in that figure.

AA The eight upper teeth of the right side.
BB The eight lower teeth of the right side.
1, 2 The two incisors [dentes incisivi] of the right side.
3 The right canine tooth [dens caninus].
4, 5, 6, 7, 8 The five right molars. 2 This numbering is applicable to both the upper and the lower group of teeth. The names of the teeth, like the varying nomenclatures of the other bones, are to be taken up at the end of this Book, as I have decided to reserve for that place whatever names I have so far encountered. 3
C The crown 4 of a molar [corona dentis molaris].
D The sharp edge of an incisor [corona dentis incisivi].
E The middle part of a molar is represented here to show the hollow [cavitas pulparis] observable in the teeth. 5
