Dental formula of deciduous teeth?
1) A.D.A system (The American Dental Association) , the teeth are designated by the alphabets, A through T ,starting at the maxillary right second deciduous molar. 2) PALMER system, makes use of a grid that has four quarters.each quarters represents one quadrent of the mouth.teeth are numbered from the midline posteriorly in each quadrant of the arch.the teeth are numbered 1 through 8 from the central incisor to the third permanent molar.in this case of deciduous dentition the designation used is A through E from the deciduous central incisor to the deciduous second molar and identifying a tooth in this system involves drawing of the specific grid and writing specific tooth alphabet (number for permanent dentition). I couldn't use the lines for draw the grid... maxillary patient right E D C B A A B C D E patient left E D C B A A B C D E mandibular 3) In F.D.I system, each tooth is given two digits.The first digit indicates the quadrant while the second digit the specific tooth in a quadrant.the quadrants are designted 1 through 4 for the permanent dentition and 5 through 8 for the primary dentition in a clockwise sequence starting at the patient's maxillary right quadrant.the deciduous teeth within the quadrant are numbered 1 to 5 starting at the central incisor….. It should be remembered that the two digits should be pronounced separately! good luck

There are twenty deciduous teeth.
Humans have a dental formula of 2-1-2-3.
Humans have twenty deciduous teeth.
I 1/3, C 1/1, P 2-3/1-2, M 3/3 x 2 = 30-34
No a dental assistant can not clean teeth. Every state is different and some states will allow certain trained assistants to polish children's teeth but most do not.

Deciduous teeth are what are commonly referred to as baby teeth - the teeth will fall out as they are replaced with permanent adult teeth. teeth that are losable
Deciduous teeth, otherwise known as milk teeth, baby teeth, temporary teeth and primary teeth, are the first set of teeth in the growth development of humans and many other ma…mmals. They develop during the embryonic stage of development and erupt---that is, they become visible in the mouth---during infancy. They are usually lost and replaced by permanent teeth, but in the absence of permanent replacements, they can remain functional for many years. Deciduous teeth start to form during the embryo phase of pregnancy. The development of deciduous teeth starts at the sixth week of development as the dental lamina. This process starts at the midline and then spreads back into the posterior region. By the time the embryo is eight weeks old, there are ten areas on the upper and lower arches that will eventually become the deciduous dentition. These teeth will continue to form until they erupt in the mouth. In the deciduous dentition there are a total of twenty teeth: five per quadrant and ten per arch. The eruption of these teeth begins at the age of six months and continues until twenty-five to thirty-three months of age. Usually, the first teeth seen in the mouth are the mandibular centrals and the last are the maxillary second molars. The deciduous dentition is made up of central incisors, lateral incisors, canines, first molars, and secondary molars; there is one in each quadrant, making a total of four of each tooth. All of these are replaced with a permanent counterpart except for the first and second molars; they are replaced by premolars. The deciduous teeth will remain until the age of six. At that time, the permanent teeth start to appear in the mouth resulting in mixed dentition. The erupting permanent teeth causes root resorption, where the permanent teeth push down on the roots of the deciduous teeth causing the roots to be dissolved and become absorbed by the forming permanent teeth. The process of shedding deciduous teeth and the replacement by permanent teeth is called exfoliation. This may last from age six to age twelve. By age twelve there usually are only permanent teeth remaining. Teething age of deciduous teeth:Central incisors : 6--12 monthsLateral incisors : 9--16 monthsCanine teeth : 16--23 monthsFirst molars : 13--19 monthsSecond molars : 22--33 months
It tells you how many teeth of each type are found on one side of the mouth.

Each state makes individual standards of care for dental professions in the field and there are several levels of licensed dental assistants such as a DA, QDA, and CDA. All st…ates do not allow dental assistants to clean adult teeth or use scalers to clean under the gingival tissue. Some states do allow assistants to polish or clean above the teeth on young children. Google your states board of dental examinars website to find out the restrictions. Only registered dental hygienist can do subgingival (under the gums) cleanings. Rdh's are like nurses and have had 2 to 4 years of college training and board licensing to be able to clean teeth verses a couple if weeks of dental assisting training just like a medical assistants training.
(2,1,2,3/2,1,2,3) x 2 If you look at or feel one side of the top of your mouth you will have 2 incisors, 1 canine, 2 premolars and 3 molars (2 molars if you wisdom teeth have …been removed). You have the same pattern on the other side of the top of your mouth and the same pattern for your bottom teeth.
