A molar is a broad ridged tooth in the adult dentition of mammals, found at the back of the jaws behind the premolars. There are two or more molars on each side of both jaws; their surfaces are raised into ridges or cusps for grinding food during chewing. In humans the third molar does not appear until young adulthood: these molars are known as wisdom teeth. Teeth are among the most distinctive and long-lasting features of mammal species. Humans, like other mammals, are diphyodont, meaning that they develop two sets of teeth.
