ABSTRACT Theropod teeth are typically not described in detail, yet these abundant vertebrate fossils are not only frequently reported in the literature, but also preserve extensive anatomical information. Often in descriptions, important characters of the crown and ornamentations are omitted, and in many instances, authors do not include a description of theropod dentition at all. The paucity of information makes identification of isolated teeth difficult and taxonomic assignments uncertain… 
The Dentition of Megalosaurid Theropods
TLDR
A discriminant analysis performed on a dataset of numerical data collected on the teeth of 62 theropod taxa reveals that megalosaurid teeth are hardly distinguishable from other theropid clades with ziphodont dentition.
The distribution of dental features in non-avian theropod dinosaurs: Taxonomic potential, degree of homoplasy, and major evolutionary trends
TLDR
The authors' observations improve the taxonomic utility of theropod teeth and in some cases can help make isolated teeth useful as biostratigraphic markers, and should be a priority for investigations seeking to classify isolated teeth.
Isolated theropod teeth associated with a sauropod skeleton from the Late Cretaceous Allen Formation of Río Negro, Patagonia, Argentina
The discovery of theropod shed teeth associated with sauropod remains is relatively common in Cretaceous deposits of Patagonia. However, only a handful of studies have thoroughly explored the
Histology of spinosaurid dinosaur teeth from the Albian-Cenomanian of Morocco: Implications for tooth replacement and ecology
High numbers of spinosaurid teeth found in Morocco suggest that this clade was very abundant during the "Mid-"Cretaceous in northern Africa. Several reasons have been proposed to account for this
(Teeth of theropod dinosaurs and dietary implications)
Isolated theropod teeth are the most common elements of this dinosaur clade found in the fossil record. This has led to the development of different qualitative, quantitative and phylogenetic
The first juvenile dromaeosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from Arctic Alaska
TLDR
This is the first confirmed non-dental fossil specimen from a member of Dromaeosauridae in the Arctic, expanding on the role of Beringia as a dispersal route for this clade between Asia and North America.
Spinosaur taxonomy and evolution of craniodental features: Evidence from Brazil
TLDR
Some craniodental features of spinosaurid theropods from Brazil are reinterpreted, providing new data for taxonomic and evolutionary issues concerning this particular clade of dinosaurs, and leave open the possibility of the former subfamily being non-monophyletic.

The Dentition of Megalosaurid Theropods

Dental morphology and variation in theropod dinosaurs: implications for the taxonomic identification of isolated teeth.
TLDR
A quantitative methodology designed to provide defensible identifications of isolated teeth using Tyrannosaurus as a comparison taxon and results indicate that expanding the standard should facilitate the identification of numerous types of isolated theropod teeth.
Dinosaur Systematics: Theropod teeth from the Judith River Formation of southern Alberta, Canada
TLDR
The identification of theropod teeth has the potential of refining stratigraphic determinations, extending temporal and geographic ranges, indicating relationships, and allowing paleoecological statements to be made on the relative diversity or abundance of certain taxa.
The First Non-Avian Theropod from the Czech Republic
All currently known theropod specimens from the Czech Republic have been attributed to the crown clade Aves. However, an archosaur tooth in the Institute of Geological Sciences (Faculty of Science,
A new carnosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of Japan
An associated skeleton from the Kitadani quarry of the Lower Cretaceous (Albian) strata in Fukui Prefecture, Japan, represents a new genus and species of carnosaur (Dinosauria: Theropoda). The
New Specimens of Microraptor zhaoianus (Theropoda: Dromaeosauridae) from Northeastern China
TLDR
New specimens of the diminutive theropod dinosaur Microraptor zhaoianus are described, found to be the sister taxon to other dromaeosaurs and apparently small size is primitive for Deinonychosauria, which has implications for bird origins.
Bird-like characteristics of the jaws and teeth of troodontid theropods (Dinosauria, Saurischia)
TLDR
A critical examination of all jaws and teeth attributed to Troodon, Stenonychosaurus, and Pectinodon concluded that Troodon is the senior synonym of these genera, and that the name Troodontidae has priority over Saurornithoididae.
