Examples of Common Cystic Lesions in Pediatric Dental Practice

  • Johan Aps


This chapter contains some examples of common cystic lesion examples and their radiographic appearance and their radiographic differential diagnoses. Obviously not all types of pathology were captured in this textbook chapter, but at least the reader will get a better feel about how the images turn out and what information can be retrieved from them.
