The three teeth associated with the premaxillary are the incisors.

The premaxillary wraps around to the ventral surface of the skull where it contributes to the hard palate.

The oval-shaped anterior palatine foramen is bounded to the posterior by the maxillary. It is a passage through which nerves and blood vessels pass.
