The odontogenesis – development of tooth – begins on the 6th week of an embryogenesis when follicles of milk teeth are put, and completely comes to the end sometimes after 20 years when the third constant painters are cut through and formation of their roots comes to an end.
Teeth of the person develop from components of a mucous membrane of an oral cavity of an embryo. Its epithelium gives rise to the structural elements participating in an enamelogenesis, and the mesenchyma is a source of dentine, a pulp and cement.
In development of each tooth distinguish 3 periods: laying of dental germs, their differentiation and a histogenesis – i.e. development of the main tissues of tooth (enamel, dentine, a pulp, cement).
