A tooth (plural teeth) is a cheap, calcified, whitish build start in the jaws (or mouths) of innumerable vertebrates and worn to defeat down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also exercise teeth for hunting or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but rather of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
The community design of teeth is be like across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction modifying in their shape and position. The teeth of mammals be struck by deep roots, and this figure is also create in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, however, the teeth are fastened to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are attached to the inner come up of the jaw alongside harmonious side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are unavailable by cold ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that accumulate the jaw.
