Dental A to Z

Dental A to Z

Also in D:


The calcified part of a tooth beneath the enamel which surrounds the pulp chamber and root canals. It contains microscopic channels [tubules] that contain nerve fibres that connect to the dental pulp. Dentine is the "living" part of the tooth. Dentine can regenerate when it has been damaged but this is a very slow process.
