Dental Anatomy: A Review
It is important for the dental team to know the appearance of normal anatomy of the face and oral cavity. This knowledge provides a sound basis for identifying abnormal conditions. The dentist holds sole responsibility for diagnosis and treatment of the patient, however, the entire dental team should always be alert for abnormal conditions in all patients’ oral cavities. There are, of course, wide variations of what can be considered normal, but with careful attention to detail the dental team will gain confidence and become more adept at identifying conditions that may require further attention.
