The fish that swim alongside sharks and clean the sharks teeth are called Pilot Fish.

The Pilot Fish also swim around rays and sea turtles and they eat the parasites from the sharks, rays and sea turtles mouth and teeth.

Sharks protect the Pilot Fish because the pilot fish help clean their teeth so they're safe around the sharks.
