tooth=dinte from latin dens, -tis

I should like to inform you there is an old word, today used
just for technical aspects and supposed to be borowed from
dinte=zimtz plural dintzi=zimtzi

If oyu cannot use today in romanian zimtz for your own teehts,
you use dinte or zimte for the Radzahn (no ideea for the word
in english:-)
The zimtz is supposed to come from bulgarian zabec or serbian

Well.. do we have a PIE radical for tooth ? I should like to
see how the rules of Mr Vinerean applies here.
