Why aren't Logan's teeth made out of adamantium like the rest of his bones? Thoughts, feedback?

@danhimself: but they are part of the skeleton (not sure if they're bones) theoretically they should have been covered with the rest of his skull

Maybe they excluded them from the process so he wouldn't look like Jaws from the James Bond series. He was intended for covert ops and assassination, after all.

Yes, teeth are bones, they are made out of the exact same material. I figured that they did have adamantium, they just made it so it didn't show.

The tooth's rod is connected to the gingiva by the nerves. No metter how hard the theeths are, if they hit u hard u can lose a tooth, it would be a waste of adamantium

Sorry for bad english

@Arevish: but they are still the same material as bone. If he lost a tooth could he just put it back? would his gums heal back over the tooth and fill it in?

@Obtrusive: Yeah, that's a good question! Or does he grow them back? I know that if his bones get broken they will mend, but what if he loses something altogether?

@Jayso4201: See Age of Apocalypse's Wolverine. He lost his hand and it didn't grow back.
