Crown, part above gum. Has thick outer layer called enamel.Neck, part between crown and root. Provides direct contact with gum.Root, part within the jaw. Forms the cover called cementum.
Enamel, Dentine, Pulp Cavity, Blood Vessels, Nerves, and Fibres.
Enamel is the surface of a tooth, part of which is exposed Made up of a hard substance that contains calcium phosphate. Dentine is the bone like structure that surrounds the pulp cavity.Made up of tiny channels containing living cells Makes the tooth sensitive. Pulp cavity is in the middle of a tooth . It has soft tissues containing blood vessels and nerves
