Quadrant Dentists often use this word to describe the area of the mouth they are working on. The mouth has four equal sections, or quadrants. They are the upper right, upper left, lower right and lower left. Picture a straight line between the center of the teeth to the back of the mouth. That is the division point. For example, a lower left molar would be in the lower left quadrant.
