Leaves are falling…Teeth are falling…out?

I just learned that another (I’m sure more technical) term for baby teeth is deciduous teeth! Just as trees whose leaves fall off each year are termed deciduous trees, the teeth that are meant to fall out are deciduous teeth. Hmm … I wonder if there are any coniferous teeth? (Maybe pointy ones?)
