Roots of a Tooth

Roots of a Tooth

The roots of a tooth, which extend below the gum line and anchor a tooth into the jawbone, have nerves and blood vessels that carry nutrients to the core (pulp) of the tooth. The roots are covered by cementum, a solid, tough tissue that helps keep the tooth firmly in its socket.
