- Adult teeth start to grow in between 6 and 12 years of age. Most adults have 32 permanent teeth.
A tooth is divided into two basic parts: the crown, which is the visible, white part of the tooth, and the root, which you can’t see. The root extends below the gum line and anchors the tooth into the bone. Your teeth contain four kinds of tissue and each does a different job.
