In an x-ray, how are dentists able to tell which tooth is an adult tooth and and which tooth is a baby tooth?

When I was younger, I never looked after my mouth well and never cared or focussed on my teeth. I’m never 100% sure on which teeth are adult teeth 😂 but my dentist knows straight away

Funny variety of stuff they teach you at University :) Some of it is even quite useful for dentistry. Like how to tell baby teeth from adult teeth :)
