permanent teeth

The 32 teeth forming the second set that begins to appear (erupt) after the shedding of the primary or ‘milk’ teeth at about the age of 6. The permanent tooth complement of each jaw consists of four biting teeth (incisors) at the front, flanked by two eye teeth (canines), four premolars and six grinding teeth (molars). The ‘wisdom teeth’ are the pair of third molars that often do not erupt until well into adult life.
