Our dental team wants you to have the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve, and we believe that’s possible if you know more about oral health and dental care. The more you know, the better you’ll understand dental terminology, oral hygiene, and dental treatment. So, to help you, our team have provided the information regarding the different sections of a tooth, which are the:
-Crown: The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible to the naked eye. It is the front, top, and back sections of the tooth.
-Enamel: The enamel is the hard outer layer of the tooth. This part acts as a shell and it protects the tooth from major dental issues.
-Dentin: Dentin is the hard tissue that is located underneath the enamel.
-Pulp chamber: The pulp chamber is the section of the tooth that harbors the nerve and blood vessels. It’s best to keep this section protected because if you don’t, you will experience extreme pain.
-Root: The root is the section of the tooth that holds it in place. The root generally lies in the bone socket and it clings to the jaw bone.
Now that you know all about the different sections of a tooth, you will better understand the way your smile and oral health work!
