OK, I found it myself:
tooth - HAMMAS, teeth - HAMPAAT (dear me, Finnish is complicated for beginners)
jaw - LEUKA jaws - LEUAT
The 1975 film by Steven Spielberg is known in Finnland as TAPPAJAHAI (killer shark), according to https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tappajahai_(elokuva)

Maybe “Jaws”? It is a cult film on sharks. And jaws are an important part of the shark’s (HAI) body. Just like their characteristic fin (EVÄ). So if you could add jaws and teeth, which are essential for biting (PURRA), I’d be very grateful.
