incisor

a front, chisel-shaped tooth in mammals, normally used for cutting or gnawing purposes. In some species incisors continue to grow throughout life - for example, gnawing rodents and rabbits have ‘persistent pulps'where the pulp cavity remains open throughout life - while in other species they are modified as tusks.
