I'm not quite sure what kind of shark teeth. The first looks a lot like a sand tiger. The other is very serrated and looks pretty neat.

I would agree with sand shark on the first two pics but the other tooth...once again, broken. It is very hard to identify a tooth with out the root. I am just down the road from where you found these teeth and I don't think I have ever seen or found a cretaceous squalicoraix. I am not stating that this is not a cretaceous squalicorax but it could also be a tip from a GW or Angustidens.

The second tooth is Squalicorax, probably pristodontus. They are found in the Myrtle Beach area. The first tooth, without the root shoulder is hard to say for sure if it is a sand tiger, could be Scapanorhynchus, but I think it is some type of sand tiger.
