One thought on “What is the function of the tooth pulp?

  1. Arti says:

    Though the pulp supplies a growing tooth with nutrients, a fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp, as it’s nourished by surrounding tissues. The tooth pulp has three main functions: housing sensory function through a network of nerves that sense hot and cold; formation of dentin the hard secondary layer of the tooth; providing nourishment to the tooth through blood vessels. Tooth pulp is the innermost living layer of the tooth that is comprised of blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues which span through the center and into each of the roots of the tooth.
