Caption

Unerupted foetal tooth, light micrograph. The first set of teeth begin to develop around six weeks after conception. The permanent teeth begin to develop around a month after this. The foetal tooth is capped with a layer of enamel (dark purple), with a layer of dentine beneath this. The pale purple inner layer is the dental papilla, which is responsible for the formation of dentine.
