What is Dentin?

Its Functions and 5 Helpful Tips To Follow

What function does it fulfill? What is its relationship with dental sensitivity? How to take care of it?

Dentin is a calcified tissue that is found beneath the enamel of the tooth and represents the majority of dental tissue.


What are the Functions of Dentin?

Dentin supports the enamel and protects the pulp. It also transmits impulses from the enamel or root to the dental pulp.

If the cavity goes untreated, it destroys dentin and can advance to the pulp, bone, and gums. Damage to dental enamel can leave the dentin exposed.
