In zoology and animal husbandry, 'cheek teeth' is a term that refers collectively to both the molars and premolars. In most mammals these teeth share similar functions (crushing, grinding, and chewing), and may be nearly indistinguishable. They are wide teeth, generally with 3-5 cusps, depending on species.

In human anatomy, cheek teeth may refer solely to the molars, although this usage is not common.
