Talking teeth? Now they can be sent easily through text message in emoji form.

A tooth is among the more than 70 new emojis in Apple's latest software update, iOS 12.1, which was released in October, according to a Business Insider article. The new emojis are available for iPhone 5S and more recent versions of the iPhone.

Other new emojis dental professionals may like include a lab coat, toolbox and petri dish. There is also a cupcake and a bagel with cream cheese, but no toothpaste or toothbrush — yet.
