A tooth (plural teeth) is a cheap, calcified, whitish form initiate in the jaws (or mouths) of multitudinous vertebrates and used to break down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also partake of teeth repayment for hunting or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered sooner than gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but fairly of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness. The general structure of teeth is alike resemble across the vertebrates, although there is of distinction modulation in their fabric and position. The teeth of mammals drink deep roots, and this pattern is also rest in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, however, the teeth are attached to the outer rise of the bone, while in lizards they are attached to the inner come up of the jaw alongside the same side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are unavailable by rough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.
