Dental care models consist of artificial teeth embedded in jaws for teaching purposes. The model teeth will work for a variety of demonstration situations. Dentists may use them for showing patients how to brush properly or to point out a specific tooth in the mouth. Teachers in an elementary classroom may use the dental models to help students learn more about the mouth. Dental care models will be available in a variety of sizes. Larger models work nicely for demonstrations to multiple people. Some dental care models will have a hinged jaw. This allows the top and bottom teeth to be spread widely apart for demonstration purposes.
