This article presents the author's response to research on devitalized, or dead, teeth. The author reflects on learning about dental pulp and tooth retention in jaws, noting how he was influenced to study stomatology. Information is also provided on dental operations, dental tissues, root canals, and dentin.

    The oral cavity of vertebrates is generally thought to arise as an ectodermal invagination. Consistent with this, oral teeth are proposed to arise exclusively from ectoderm, contributing to tooth enamel epithelium, and from neural crest derived mesenchyme, contributing to dentin and pulp. Yet in...
