Radiology is an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems. Dentists are often the first to encounter lesions of the face and jaws.
This book is a practical guide to oral and maxillofacial radiology. Beginning with an introduction to dental radiography, the following sections examine radiation physics and biology, X-Rays and digital imaging and various imaging techniques.
A comprehensive section describes the radiographic diagnosis of pathology affecting the jaws, including dental caries, cysts, tumours, temporomandibular disorders, and salivary gland disorders.
The final section discusses the role of radiology in specialised dental fields such as implant radiology and forensic odontology.
More than 800 high quality radiographic images and illustrations enhance this comprehensive text.
