When talking about dog anatomy, due to the fact that Rottweiler dogs often have teeth problems, their  teeth characteristics should be pointed out.

An adult dog should have 42 teeth. We use the dental formula to determine the number of teeth of each kind.

There are two dental formulas, one for the deciduous teeth and the other for the permanent teeth.

A young dog still having his deciduous (baby) teeth, has 32 teeth for which the formula looks like this: The number before the line is the number of teeth in the upper jaw on each side, and the number after the line is the number of teeth in the lower jaw on each side.

This means that the dog on each side of the upper jaw has 3 incisors, 1 canine, 4 premolars and 2 molars, and on each side of the lower jaw it has 3 incisors, 1 canine, 4 premolars and 3 molars.

There are several types of dog teeth:

Scissor bite – the upper incisors with their inner surface touch the outer surface of the lower incisors.

Overshot bite – when the lower jaw is shorter than the upper jaw, so that the gap between the upper incisors and the lower incisors is greater than a matchstick.

Undershot bite – when the lower jaw teeth extend past the upper jaw teeth.
