"A Tooth is one of the hard bodies of the mouth, attached to the skeleton, but not forming part of it and developed from the dermis or true skin. True teeth consist of one, two, or more tissues differing in their chemical composition and in their microscopical appearances. Dentine, which forms the body of the tooth, and 'cement,' which forms its outer crust, are always present, the third tissue, the 'enamel,' when present, being situated between the dentine and cement. The incisors, or cutting teeth, are situated in front. In men there are two of these incisors in each side of each jaw. The permanent incisors, molars, and premolars are preceded by a set of deciduous or milk teeth, which are lost before maturity, and replaced by the permanent ones. The canines come next to the incisors. In man there is one canine tooth in each half-jaw. The premolars (known also as bicuspids and false molars) come next in order to the canines. In man there are two premolars in each half-jaw. The true molars (or multicuspids) are placed most posteriorly. In man there are three molars in each half-jaw, the posterior one being termed the wisdom tooth. The figures [in the illustration] refer to years after birth."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)

Structure of the teeth. A tooth consists of 3 structures, the dentine (2), or ivory, the proper dental substance, forming the larger portion; the enamel or adamant (3), a layer covering the crown; and the cement (1), a thin layer on the surface of the fang. A central chamber, the pulp-cavity, occupies the interior, and contains the pulp, a soft, vascular, and sensitive organ, surrounded by a layer of cells, the odonto-blasts, or dentine-forming cells.

The temporary teeth of the left side. The masticating surfaces of the tow upper molars are shown above. In the second row the upper teeth are viewed from the outer or labial side. In the third row the lower teeth are shown in a similar manner; and below are the masticating surfaces of the two lower molars. In the specimen from which the first upper molar was drawn the two outer or buccal cusps were not distinctly separated, as is often the case.

Characteristics of the teeth. Teach tooth consists of a crown or body, projecting above the gum; root or fang, embedded within the alveolus; and the neck, the constricted portion between the grown and the fang. There are 4 classes of teeth: incisors (1), canines (2), premolars or bicuspids (3), and molars (4).

Diagram to illustrate the development of a tooth. I. Shows the downgrowth of the dental lamina D.L. from the surface epithelium E and the beginning of the enamel germ E.G. II. Shows the further growth of the enamel germ and its invagination. III. The enamel germ is more invaginated, and its inner layer of cells becomes columnar. A, the dental lamina, grows thinner, but near its posterior or lingual edge there is an enlargement R.G which is the reserve germ for a permanent tooth. The superficial cells of the dentine papilla P are becoming columnar. IV. The inner columnar cells of the enamel germ ( called enamel cells) A have formed a cap of enamel EN, inside which the superficial cells of the papilla, the odontoblasts O, have formed a layer of dentine D. V. Shows a more advances stage still. The deposit of dentine is extending downwards, and enclosing the papilla to form the future pulp, in which a vessel V is seen. Labels: A, inner layer; B, outer layer; C, remains of intermediate cells; D, dentine; D.L, dental lamina; E, epithelium; E.G, enamel germ; EN, enamel; F, dental furrow; L.D, labio-dental furrow; M, connective tissue cells; O, odontoblasts; P, dentine papilla; R.G, reserve germ; V, blood vessels.
