Caption: Developing tooth. 19th century artwork of a section through an infant's gum showing a developing tooth. The grey sac at centre is the developing dental pulp, which will contain the blood vessels and nerves (white). The white structure is mostly composed of an inner layer of dentine, a mineralised connective tissue. The layer of enamel covering the dentine is just starting to form. Blood vessels and alveolar bone are seen either side of the tooth. This anatomical artwork is plate 16 from volume 5 (1839) of 'Traite complet de l'anatomie de l'homme' (1831-1854). This 8-volume anatomy atlas was produced by the French physician and anatomist Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797-1849). The illustrations were by Nicolas-Henri Jacob (1781-1871).
