Decay of Teeth Bones

What are teeth bones? Is there any connection between the two? Are teeth bones? Believe it or not, both can answer this question. While teeth are part of our overall skeletal structure, they are a far cry from bones.

A closer examination or both soon shows they are quite different from each other. While teeth do have many of the same similarities to the bone, they are, in actuality, quite different.

 If you want to understand what are teeth made up of. You need to understand what makes bones.

Structure of a tooth

Our teeth consist mainly of enamel, a hard substance that protects the interior of your tooth from decay. The interior of your tooth consists mainly of dentin, which is the hard outer layer, and the enamel.

The dentin is made up of two parts: the dentin cavity, where the material forms the tooth itself, and the pulp, which stores the carbonic acid needed to grind down and dehydrate your tooth’s enamel.

 The dentin and enamel are connected by a root canal that is a long tube running from the gum into the back of your tooth. This root canal keeps bacteria from getting inside and infecting the teeth.

Root of teeth

The nerves are located inside the pulp chamber. They are connected directly to the blood vessels which supply the tooth. The blood vessels supply oxygenated blood to the nerve cells.

 When the nerves are damaged due to disease, accident, trauma, or chewing on something hard, the pulp hardens and becomes a toothache.

The problem with the nerves causing the pain is that they are attached to blood vessels and are responsible for transmitting impulses to the brain.

Since the nerves and the blood vessels cannot move properly without the proper support, the tissues begin to die. Eventually, the tissues will fill with dead tissue, and the holes from the cementum will become visible.

This is called a yellow teeth layer. This layer is a combination of dead tissue and cementum.

Dental pulp

The final component is the dental pulp. The dental pulp is the warm, soft tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth.

The most noticeable sign of this component is the white gums that bleed upon brushing. This is because the tissues become filled with blood during a brushing session.

The composition of these components is all-important. The cementum acts as a support for the tooth. If the cementum is too thin, then it will be more likely to break under pressure.

 It can be more difficult for the tooth to stay in place if it is too thick and can cause the tooth to crack or even pop. The last component is the bones. These are considered building material for the tooth.

Dental material

Teeth are made up of different types of materials. Some of these are enamel, dentin, and calcium cement. Many factors influence their appearance.

These include how the teeth are growing, how they are developed, and how they are used. However, certain factors are considered to be an indication that the teeth are in good condition.

Teeth that are growing properly are referred to as “canines” or “soft canines”. On the other hand, teeth that are growing improperly are referred to as “incisors”. Incisors are the sharp pointed teeth at the back of the mouth.

They are often used to pull foods into one’s mouth or to cut food into small pieces for chewing.

Teeth that are growing poorly are referred to as “molars” or “soft molars”. On the other hand, those teeth which are growing properly are referred to as “corticles”.

These are also known as “hard canines”. Those teeth that are missing are referred to as “capsular teeth”. These are commonly referred to as “spolars”.

Tooth decay

Tooth decay, which affects the innermost layer of the teeth known as the dentin. This layer of dentin is made of keratin and consists of a single cell.

The most common cause of this layer being broken is the wearing away or abrading of this protective coating by external forces such as tooth decay and grinding.

When tooth decay eats away at the dentin layers, the teeth bones directly underneath it become exposed, exposing them to the highly toxic effects of hydroxyapatite crystals.

Hydroxyapatite crystals are highly acidic and result in severe damage to the dentin layers, which can only be repaired by using dentin restoration materials such as enameloplasty and veneers.
