    Mods,
    If this is not the correct place for this, please feel free to move. I get so wrapped up in these cases, that I am constantly googling. I wanted to put this where it could be easy to reach.
    It's interesting that the teeth could last centuries? Fascinating stuff.

    May be graphic. Proceed with caution.

    You know, after it's been embalm, you've had the funeral and it's be put in the casket laid to rest contained by the dirt, how long does it take until it starts to rust? And what happens to your eyes and tongue and stuff close to that?

    The teeth are often the just thing departed, years and centuries later, because tooth enamel is the strongest substance surrounded by the body.

    Per above link. I think that was meant to say "Last thing departed."
