Human teeth are a real miracle of nature. They help in cutting and chewing the food. There are four types of teeth, incisors, canines, molars and premolars. While the incisors cut the food, canines tear food. The molars and premolars crush and chew the food. Every person has two sets of teeth in his lifetime (Diphodant). Teeth are embedded in the jaws and covered by gums. Teeth are made up of four major components of which enamel is the hardest. The other three are dentin, cementum and pulp. Enamel coats the outer part of the teeth. Dentin lies between the cementum and pulp. It is softer then enamel, decays easily and cavities are formed here.It supports the crown of the tooth.
Cementum is a bone like thing covering the root of the tooth.It is softer than enamel and dentin.Pulp is the central part of the tooth filled with soft tissue.It has blood vessels and nerve endings. There are mainly two causes of Dental problems. One is plaque, which is a biofilm of bacteria forming on the tooth. The other is tooth decay. It is caused by acid producing bacteria in the presence of carbohydrates.
