Teeth have to be very hard to withstand all the chewing and crunching of food. The hard material of the tooth is composed of calcium, phosphorus, and other mineral salts. The material in the majority of the tooth is called dentine. The hard, shiny layer that you brush is called the enamel

Teeth have two basic parts, a root to anchor the tooth to the jaw and a crown above the gum line. The root is covered with a hard material called cementum. At the center of each tooth is an area with nerves, arteries and veins called the dental pulp.

calacium and bone ;))


sri
teeth are formed in layers ... first is enamel made of enamel rods and is inorganic , next is dentine which is yellow in shade and has the nerve endings ,this makes the teeth sensitive to hot or cold , and the last layer is pulp that is the life of the tooth which has the blood supply and nerve supply of the tooth,the root portion is same and with the exception it has a cemental layer instead of enamel

Teeth have two basic parts, a root to anchor the tooth to the jaw and a crown above the gum line. The root is covered with a hard material called cementum. At the center of each tooth is an area with nerves, arteries and veins called the dental pulp.

Humans have four different types of teeth, each with a different function:

Incisors for cutting off bites of food.
Cuspids (sometimes called canines because of their long sharp points) for tearing food
Bicuspids (with two points) to tear and crush food
Molars with large relatively flat surfaces to crush and grind food.

Our four different types of teeth together are called collective dentition and they allows humans to be omnivores (eating both meat and vegetables). Most animals have more specialized teeth. Carnivorous (meat eating) animals have long sharp tearing teeth (like our incisors and cuspids). Grazing animals, like cows and horses have large flat teeth (like our molars) for grinding grass and other vegetation.

The bulk of a tooth is made of dentine...(hence the word dentist)...then that is covered with a layer of enamel.

It is made up of the enamel, Dentine, Pulp and Cementum

The enamel is on the top and it is the white hard covering over the crown of the tooth.It is shaped into cusps, fissures and pits in premolar and molar teeth. It is the hardest material in the body and does not have a nerve supply. Chipping or damage to enamel only will not be painful.
