INTERESTING FACT: How strong are your teeth? Although it looks like you can see a lot of your teeth, all you really see is the hard exterior known as the crown. The crown is covered with a super-hard, shiny substance called enamel. The enamel is like body armor for your teeth, protecting their inner parts from damage.
How hard is enamel? Very hard! In fact, the enamel on your teeth is the hardest substance in your body! It’s even harder than your bones.
Underneath the enamel is another hard substance called dentin. Most of the tooth is made up of dentin. Dentin isn’t quite as hard as enamel, but it’s still quite hard and does a good job of protecting the innermost part of the tooth, called the pulp. Dentin is about as hard as your bones.
The soft pulp is where the tooth’s nerve endings can be found. It’s also where the body’s blood supply connects to the tooth to deliver necessary nutrients. If your teeth hurt from biting into something hot (or cold!) or a cavity, it’s the nerve endings in the pulp that sense the pain and send messages to your brain about what’s going on with your teeth.
The pulp reaches all the way underneath the gums to the root of the tooth. A tooth’s roots are made up of a substance called cementum, which anchors each tooth to the jawbone.
Now that you know a bit more about what makes up your teeth, you might want to know why they’re so important. Not only do they help you chew your food, but they also help you talk. It’s true! If you think about the words you speak, you’ll realize that many sounds you make every day are formed by the way your teeth interact with your lips and tongue!
