A dental consonant is a consonant articulated with the front of the tongue against the upper teeth. They are a subtype of coronal consonants, and are typically laminal, especially is contrasting with another type of coronal consonant.

In IPA dentals are denoted, if necessary, by appending the diacritic ◌̪ (U+032A COMBINING BRIDGE BELOW) to the coronal basic symbols, but this is frequently omitted if dentality isn't contrastive. Also, the non-sibilant fricatives have separate signs: [θ], [ð].
