How come the skull still has teeth attached to it?

Because when all your baby teeth fall out, you get permanent teeth. and your permanent teeth are bones that stick (sorry, I don't know how.) to your skull.

Teeth are bones attached to the skull by roots.


Felix
They are just there because that's where they were, you can pull them out very easily


Mr. Peachy®
To give the gums something to do.

Because teeth have roots.

Because the teeth roots are so strong that they wont fall out when you die. Also, teeth are considered a bone too, so go ask a dentist. or kill soemone, and see if they fall out.

The jaw bone holds the teeth in place, the gums don't. They hold them in place when the roots (also teeth material) wrap themselves around the jaw bone. Ever have a tooth pulled? It's no easy task to release that tooth away from the jaw...good queston by the way!

The reason that you can still find teeth in the jaw bones of the skull even after someone has died is because the teeth have long roots that are attached deep within the bone. When a person is alive, these roots are attached within the bones by lots of little ligaments (called periodontal ligaments). These little ligaments secure the teeth to the bone. When baby teeth are exfoliated, you do not see the roots because when the adult teeth begin to erupt, they resorb the roots of the baby teeth. When a person dies, these periodontal ligaments dry out and undrego a typr of calcification that somewhat fuses the teeth to the bone. Also because teeth (especially molars) have more that one root this helps to physically lock the teeth in place after a person dies.
