The Anatomy of a Tooth

A tooth is made up of four different tissues that allow it to function on a daily basis. The enamel is a strong layer that covers the crown and protects the tooth from normal wear and tear. The dentin is the softer layer inside that absorbs the pressure from eating. The pulp nourishes the tooth and houses the nerves and the blood vessels. The cementum keeps the tooth connected to the jawbone. Learn more about the parts of a tooth in this video.
