About Tooth Roots

Understanding the anatomy of your teeth is essential for maintaining good oral health. The root of a tooth is a critical component that resides below the crown. It is typically encased within the jawbone and plays a vital role in supporting and anchoring the tooth in place.

Key facts about tooth roots:

  • Composition: The root is primarily composed of dentin, a hard tissue similar to but not as hard as enamel.
  • Root Canal: Within the root lies the root canal, which contains the dental pulp—blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that nourish the tooth during development.
  • Covering: The outer surface of the root is covered by cementum, a calcified tissue that helps anchor the tooth to the jawbone and provides a surface for periodontal ligaments to attach to.

Your tooth's roots play a crucial role in maintaining the stability and functionality of your smile. Issues with tooth roots can lead to various dental problems, including tooth mobility and tooth loss.
