Why dinodentures? – The teeth of sauropods, and among the extant fauna of toothed whales, have a tendency to be preserved as complete tooth rows, divorced of the jaw bones. Scientists assume that strong types of tissue were holding them together even during the decaying process and that allowed whole dentitions to slip out and become embedded in sediment. There is still uncertainty if the connecting tissue was more like tough tooth gum as in whales or part of beak-like cover of the jaw tips.
