Shark teeth are not attached to gums on a root like our teeth. Typically, sharks lose at least one tooth per week. They average out to 15 rows of teeth in each jaw. Although most have 5 and then there is the bull shark that has 50 rows of teeth. The teeth are arranged in neat conveyor belt rows and can be replaced within a day of losing one. A shark's tooth shape is dependent upon its diet. For instance, the short fin mako razor like teeth tear flesh, the tiger shark has piercing teeth to cut flesh, and the zebra shark has dense flattened teeth because it feasts upon mollusks. Even though many sharks have sharp teeth that could inflict a wound to humans, sharks should always be treated with respect.
