Dental Growth, Development, and Eruption There are two sets of teeth in mammals: the deciduous (or baby) teeth followed by the permanent dentition. 33), and begin to develop deep inside the maxilla or mandible before reaching a point in their development at which they erupt beyond the gum line (or the alveolus in bone) and become noticeable in the mouth. Note that in a young mandible, there are large voids (called crypts) in which the crown of the tooth develops, and those voids close around the root of the tooth as it erupts beyond the alveolus.

Remaining soft tissue will usually continue to decompose (depending upon the moisture content in the soft tissue and the environment in which they are stored), although desiccated soft tissue stored in a very dry environment can remain relatively unaltered for years. In general, the more slowly soft tissue is removed, the less likely the bone will be damaged. Intense heat and harsh chemicals can destroy the organic and inorganic components of bone and will make the bone weaker (and even destroy some of the features).
