The Tooth is a hard calcified structure found in our mouth , anchored in the upper jaw and the ones anchored in the lower jaw (also called mandible).
What we normally see when we smile is called Crown , the ones we don’t see is called the Root which is inside the jaw.
The following are the parts of a tooth:
ENAMEL – outermost covering of the tooth, hardest tissue part of the human body
DENTIN – inner part of the tooth next to the ENAMEL from the outside, hard tissue
PULP – innermost part of the tooth, it has blood vessels and nerves, provides nutrition and sensitivity to the tooth
CEMENTUM – hard tissue that covers the root of the tooth
PERIODONTAL LIGAMENTS – these are collagen fibers and attach the teeth to the bone and gingival tissues
GUMS –soft tissue that ideally surrounds the root of the teeth
