Sharks attach teeth by a common sheet of connective tissue, whereas bony fishes fasten them to the jaw individually (Berkovitz 2000). Bony fishes typically attach them to the tip of the jaw, whereas amphibians and most reptiles anchor them to the side. Today, only a few fish species, crocodilians, and mammals have tooth sockets, although many more, like dinosaurs and toothed birds, did in the past. However, m­ammals are different from the others (Gaengler 2000). Crocodiles, for example, have replacement teeth in the same sockets as their predecessors, whereas mammals replace the walls of milk tooth sockets when permanent teeth erupt.
