General composition:
Teeth (Terminologia histologica: dentes) consist of 3 different sustaining tissues, i.e. the enamel, dentin and cementum and have a central space (pulp cavity) consisting of mucoid connective tissue. From the histological point of view the 32 teeth of the adult are identical to the 20 milk teeth. The crown (Terminologia histologica: Corona dentis) is on top of the tooth neck (tooth cervix; Terminologia histologica: Cervix dentis) which is covered by the gingiva (Terminologia histologica: Gingiva) and the whole structure is anchored by the root of tooth (Terminologia histologica: Radix dentis).
