Term Detail
GO term:odontogenesis
Synonym: odontogenesis of calcareous or chitinous tooth
Synonym: odontogeny
Synonym: odontosis
Synonym: tooth development
GO id:GO:0042476
Definition:The process whose specific outcome is the progression of a tooth or teeth over time, from formation to the mature structure(s). A tooth is any hard bony, calcareous, or chitinous organ found in the mouth or pharynx of an animal and used in procuring or masticating food.
