The number of teeth sometimes varies

The number of incisors and canines rarely changes in humans as does that of molars. Sometimes there are five molars on either side, sometimes four; occasionally four occur on the left but five on the right, or contrarily five on the left and four on the right, or four below but five above. This variability occurs most often in the back teeth, which most people call the genuini, though Cicero applied this term to all the molars. 15
