The incisors, which are at the front of the mouth, have "chisel" type edges for cutting the food.
The canines, which are pointed rather than chisel-like, lie next to the incisors, but further towards the "molars" at the back. Canine teeth are used for tearing the food (Think of the tiger ripping food from its prey.)
Just to complete this, the "molars" are the larger, flatter teeth right at the back, and these are for "grinding" food, just as the word "molar" suggests grinding because the word "molar" comes from a language where its meaning is to do with mills.
Incisors are for biting and tearing food. While, molars are for chewing and grinding the food
Your canines are your eyeteeth. Your incisors are the sharp front teeth used for biting. The canines are used for tearing and the molars for chewing.

There are premolars, molars, incisors and canines.
Your eye teeth. Also occasionally known as Canines.
It will depend on how they eat and whether they are primarily hunters or scavengers.Carnivores will generally have larger canines and fewer molars and premolars. Their premolars and molars will generally be used for crushing bones or tearing meat - not for grinding like in a herbivore. Therefore they may have a different structure. They will also still have incisors at the front - for grabbing on to the meat.
Incisors are for biting food while molars are used to mash, grind, and chew food. Lastly, canines are used for tearing.
Canines cut. Molars chew. And incisors tear
Those are kinds of teeth.
