Why Don’t A Zombie’s Teeth Rot, And Fall Out?

Why Are There No Toothless Zombies?
As we all know the main weapon of a zombie is it’s mostly flat human looking teeth which are in fact far denser than human teeth.  The teeth powered by a supernaturally powered mandible, aka lower jaw, and the four major muscles of mastication that produce an iron grip.  As a zombie rots slowly it seems that the teeth, gums, and the various muscles of the jaw region rot the least.  Second only to the eyes, aroma chemoreceptors, various nerves, and the brain itself.  Only destruction of the brain ends a zombie’s living dead existence.  Human flesh, and blood fuels the supernatural zombie virus, and slows down necrosis in the bodies of the walking dead.  Much of the human fuel goes to the areas mentioned above so these mindless killing machines can keep on with their slow death march.  In fact if a zombies teeth are somehow destroyed they are the only body part that will grow back.  When the dead are raised with their rotting teeth, or no teeth they will grow a new set of chompers.

If the teeth rotted the same speed as the rest of the body then they’d fall out quickly, and the zombie would be a minimal threat.  Losing it’s eyesight, ability to smell live humans, and the instinctual human hunting abilities in the brain would render a zombie useless as an extermination method by the forces of evil on this Earth. Raising the dead as a weapon against the living via magic, or converting the living into living dead drones via the paranormal zombification virus has always been a special favorite of the dark denizens of destruction.

About Ashley Abercrombie

I'm Mystic Investigations Chief Cryptozoologist. I became interested in Cryptids when I found out my missing father was in fact a zombie. A pre-zombie who fathered me while he was infected with the paranormal zombification virus. Now I'm some how a zombie-human hybrid. Although I look perfectly normal, and live a mostly normal life. Well except for the fact that I can fake being dead, and can go a long time without breathing oxygen. My blood holds the key to curing the zombie scourge that infests our paranormal planet.
