Crown on the part of the tooth that is above the gingiva and is visible in the mouth; The part that is not visible in the mouth and remains in the bone is called the root. Teeth consist of several layers. The outermost layer; It is the enamel layer that is seen above the gingival border. There is a structure called dentin under the enamel layer. Under the enamel and dentin, which are the outer tissues of the tooth, there is the pulp tissue, which is a soft connective tissue and forms the living part of the tooth.

When a tooth is fully developed, the pulp tissue; It is to inform that the tooth is damaged or inflamed by transmitting the pain.
