Teeth act as 'life history'


Teeth are a lasting and faithful biological record of the entire life of the organism, from the creation of the dent to death, a team of researchers found. Her research offers new evidence of the effect events have on an organism, such as reproduction and incarceration.

The research focused on cementum, the dental tissue that covers the tooth's root. It begins to form annual layers -- similar to a tree's "rings" -- from the time the tooth surfaces in the mouth. The finding of this little-studied tissue that personal aspects of a person's life are documented promises to put cement right into the core of many existing debates regarding the evolution of human life itself.

The cementum's microstructure, visible only through microscopic examination, can reveal the underlying organization of the fibers and particles that make up the material of this part of the tooth.

Human teeth act like rings of the tree and store intimate details of a person's life, a study found. American studies find a compound in teeth called cementum annually forms a fresh coat.

The so-called biological record in our teeth reveals the impact of reproduction, chronic diseases and incarceration on our bodies, say the writers of the study, who have based their work on cement, a kind of dental tissue that protects the roots of our teeth.
