Whenever I see a picture of a tooth, I see the part that you chew with, and I see a spiky-looking part that supposedly sticks in your gums. (in cartoon pictures, these are sometimes the legs of the tooth-character.)I want to know, what is that spiky part called, what is it there for, and most of all, WHERE DOES IT GO WHEN YOU LOSE YOUR TOOTH??? Your answer will be greatly appreciated. My own dentist can't even tell me this!
