The pulp is secured by the outermost a portion of the tooth, the enamel, as well as by the dentin that lies underneath the enamel. This hard casing of the pulp ensures it from getting to be infected by microbes present within the mouth.

Since the pulp is rich with nerves and blood vessels, contamination of the pulp can lead to sensitivity and toothache.
