This course will present the radiographic appearance of the various components of tooth structure as well as the development and eruption of the primary and permanent dentitions. Subsequently, dental anomalies associated with the eruption, number, size, and shape of the teeth along with acquired alterations of tooth structure will be discussed. This information will facilitate differentiation between normal and abnormal tooth structure and enhance the ability to recognize and describe various tooth related anomalies.
This course will focus on the normal radiographic appearance of the teeth as viewed on intraoral and panoramic radiographic images followed by the presentation of anomalies associated with the teeth. Recognition of the normal radiographic appearance of the teeth serves as a baseline to differentiate normal from abnormal. Anomalies or alterations of the teeth can be congenital, developmental, or acquired and include a variety of changes associated with the eruption, number, size, and shape of the teeth as well as acquired variations.
