Introduction to teeth

Teeth (Latin: dentes) are small structures containing solid bone-like tissue on the outside and soft connective tissue on the inside. 

They are located in the oral cavity and belong to the digestive system. Teeth are mainly responsible for mechanical food processing during the digestion process.

They are arranged into two rows, known as the upper (maxillary) and lower (mandibular), and they lie in the dental alveoli of the maxilla and mandible
