Incisor cusps
According to R. F. Chapman's - The Insects (on page 16) I now know the 'teeth' are called incisor cusps. Dr. Thomas J. Walker gave me a copy of this book (published in 1969), which he feels is a great resource for anatomy.

Gerardine's amazing photos show why....
...you can feel when a tree cricket nibbles on your skin! :)
