As Barry says, you can treat teeth as bone or as something really
Diagnostic pathology on teeth seems to me to be a virtual waste of
time.  As I have said (too) often before, pull them out, problem goes
into the bucket!  Gone!

If they are being sectioned for teaching purposes, then Barry's offer
is to be accepted.  To get really good section, with the various
tissues in their proper microanatomical relattion to one-another,
you will need patience and hard earned skill.

If you are doing research and using animals, then the previous
paragraph applies "in spades".  [Sorry, is that an English
expression?].  Ok if you are using tigers, but much more difficult if
using mice.

How about NOT doing teeth? is that an option?  We hardly ever
section them nowadays, except for the occasional forensic case.
