Dental tissues.

The teeth consist of four tissues which are distinct but have strong functional or biological links. Dentin, a tissue like bone, accounts for the majority of the organ. The coronal dentin is covered by enamel and the radicular dentin by a very thin layer of cementum. The dental pulp retains its odontogenesis properties throughout its life. The teeth are connected to alveolar bone by the alveolodental (or periodontal) ligament.
