 Help: Dentistry Terminology

I am a medical transcriptionist, and I am doing some work for a periodontist.
 I have a question regarding writing the numbers of the teeth.  Should I
transcribe:

"tooth #8"

or

"tooth number 8"

or

"tooth number eight"

or is there some other specific way to write it?  I really appreciate any
help.

Hello Eric, in which language should it be translated? In North America
"tooth #8" indicates the first uper right incisor, in Europe it would be
called as tooth "11" according to international dental nomenclature.

salut,
Thang
