Teeth are not bones but are still part of the human skeletal system. While the adult human skeletal system includes 206 bones, the infantile skeletal system has many more, since not all of the bones have fused together yet.
The skeleton acts as a scaffold by providing support and protection for the soft tissues that make up the rest of the body. The skeletal system also provides attachment points for muscles to allow movements at the joints.
