Consider examining the following websites for some guidance:

However, you will probably need to read some additional sources to develop a better understanding

I would suggest that if you are aiming for a publication quality article, that you enlist a statistician as a consultant or coauthor who can look over your shoulder rather than relying on remote resources.  Lots of things can go wrong.

Re: help

Mike
Jon provides good advice and I support getting such assistance.  However,
I assumed (perhaps erroneously) that a statistical consultant or colleague
was not available or there was no money or other incentives to compensate
for their time and effort.There could be other reasons why such assistance
may not be available.  Nonetheless, even if one does take on the material
by oneself, it doesn't hurt to have someone to review what one is doing
(i.e., helping to avoid making disastrous errors).

Re: help

Rich Ulrich
In reply to this post by samuelsr
I see answers about resources.  I will add that "analysis of variance"
is a general term, and least-squares regression is a general model
that can exactly perform "ANOVA" models - I remember when the
SPSS manual ANOVA described its ANOVA as "ANOVA by regression
methods."   So, Why do you prefer "regression"?

Using all capital letters, "ANOVA" refers to models that are presented
with categorical variables handled in a very convenient way for
presentation and discussion.  You have the options in ANOVA of
several ways of testing "covariates."  What SPSS regression adds is
the ability to code your own contrasts and the need to code dummy-
contrasts for categorical variables; and the ability to explicitly test
the contribution of adding specific sets of variables.

Also, as to "teeth" in particular:  If you are referring to human teeth,
you might want to take into account the /maximum/ count and how
many have been /lost/; or, perhaps, the explicit count of how many
are missing for particular reasons.  (I think of "knocked out" and
"losses from tooth/gum disease" versus "molars removed for lack of
room" and "never came in".)

As Rich suggests, number of teeth is a discrete count variable, not a
continuous variable.  So you might want to consider using a count regression
model (e.g., Poisson or negative binomial).

https://stats.idre.ucla.edu/spss/output/poisson-regression/
https://stats.idre.ucla.edu/spss/dae/negative-binomial-regression/
