Every time we enjoy a delicious treat, taste our favorite meal, or sneak a square of chocolate, it is our teeth that we have to thank – we owe these sturdy structures a lot! Keen to learn more about your teeth and how they work? Then let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a “U” shape in the center of your page. Take the right side of this across to the right, and the left up, across to the right, and ”hooked” at the end.
Reflect this shape on the other side to form the outline of a tooth.
Next, add another, smaller tooth inside the first…
And follow this with a third, slightly more square shape.
Add an ”n” shape inside this…
And then bring a curved line across on either side.
Add lines to the bottom of the shape, parallel with those above, and take the ends of the lines across to the sides.
Grab an orange pen, and shade the second ”layer” of the tooth.
Use a yellow pen to add slightly curved lines emerging from the bottom of the inner section…
And add other lines in between with a red pen.
Follow this with more lines using a green pen…
And then shade this ”inner section” with a brown pencil.
Grab a yellow pen, and add color to the space below the tooth.
Use an orange pen to shade the top ”strip”, and then use this shade to add dots across the yellow section at the bottom.
Extend the colored lines past the bottom of the tooth with the green pen…
And use the red pen to draw more lines here.
Grab a ruler and a black fineliner pen and draw a series of straight lines and brackets all around the outside of the tooth.
Add the right labels to complete your diagram. From the bottom left corner: Nerve, blood and vesseles, cement, bone, root canal, gums, pulp cavity, dentin, enamel, crown, neck, root.
Learning to take proper care of your teeth starts with making sure that you understand them properly; and learning the parts is only the beginning. Why not do a little research – there are plenty of fun facts to explore!
