The neck of the tooth tightly covered by gum, the epithelium of which forms a strong bond with tooth enamel. Inside the crown of the tooth is a tooth cavity filled with soft tissue or pulp. The cavity of the tooth passes into the roots in the form of channels. Different teeth have different bits and a different number of roots.
