My Family Dentistry Infographic: The Anatomy of a Tooth

Ever wondered what’s inside your teeth? Whether you’re just curious or want to teach your children or even a classroom about the anatomy of a tooth, our new infographic can help! 

Anatomy of a Tooth Infographic

It outlines the parts of the teeth with a short description:

Enamel: the tough, shiny, white outer surface of the tooth

Dentin: the hard but porous tissue located under both the enamel and the cementum of the tooth. Dentin is harder than bone!

Pulp: the soft center of the tooth. The pulp contains blood vessels and nerves; it nourishes the dentin

Crown: the visible part of the tooth

Gums: the soft tissue that surrounds the base of the teeth

Root: the anchor of a tooth that extends into the jawbone

Cementum: a layer of tough, yellowish, bone-like tissue that covers the root of a tooth. It helps hold the tooth in the socket

Now, when we mention enamel or dentin in blog posts, you’ll have a clear picture of what we’re talking about!
