how to decode a stl file in SolidWorks to have access to the parts devided from each other?

I have bought a model of a human skull that has all teeth with their roots included in the model. I have to have access to every tooth divided from the skull and the other teeth. I don't know how to decode the stl file to have access to all the parts separately in SolidWorks 2012. I would be grateful if anyone can help me with that.

Thank you
