How does a tiger shark get a new tooth if its teeth is broken or worn down?
New teeth grow to replace those the shark has lost, Because it has back up rows of teeth behind those that it loses. Sometimes they can have up to 5 rows of teeth at one time! From what i understand about sharks is that they (unlike humans) continue to make teeth throughout their lifetime. Tiger sharks included.
How long are sharks teeth?
The length of a shark's teeth depends on the type of shark. The largest living shark, a whale shark, has teeth that are relatively small, even tiny. The smallest living shark, the dogfish, also has tiny teeth, while the great white shark has teeth the size of about 36 mm, or 1.43 in. But the largest shark to have ever lived, the megalodon, could grow teeth longer than seven inches long.

How can you grow new teeth in adults?
You can not grow new teeth in adults. All humans will have 2 sets of teeth during their lifetime, one being the baby teeth which are lost during childhood and the permanent teeth which are stronger and supposed to last for the rest of your lifetime. If permanent teeth are lost then you may go to a dentist who will direct you to a specialist which will fabricate teeth for you.
Asked in Sharks
What is difference between shark and human teeth?
Sharks have 5 or more rows of teeth. Humans only have 20 baby teeth and 32 adult teeth. Sharks can re-grow teeth. Humans only get 2 sets (milk teeth and permanent teeth). Sharks have serrated edges on their teeth. Shark teeth are not attached to the jaw. Humans bite and chew with their teeth. Sharks use their teeth to rip their prey apart.
Asked in Sharks, Great White Sharks
Do sharks have human teeth?
No. Only humans have human teeth. Shark teeth are embedded in the gums rather than directly affixed to the jaw, and are constantly replaced throughout life. Multiple rows of replacement teeth grow in a groove on the inside of the jaw and steadily move forward as in a "conveyor belt"; some sharks lose 30,000 or more teeth in their lifetime. The rate of tooth replacement varies from once every 8-10 days to several months. In most species teeth are replaced one at a time
