Parts of the mouth quiz

Contents of your mouth quiz

How familiar are you with the contents of your mouth?

See if you can answer these quiz questions:

  1. Permanent teeth, otherwise known as adult teeth, are formed of eight incisors, __________ canines, __________ premolars and __________ molars.
  2. _________ is a single word meaning false teeth.
  3. Many sportspeople wear a ___________ to protect their teeth.
  4. If a tooth has a small hole caused by decay, the treatment for this is a _________.

All of these words are very common, not particularly medical and familiar to patients.

They could come up in the Listening or Reading tests so it’s good to be familiar with vocabulary outside of the specialism you currently work in.
