Different Types of Dysplasia in Pediatric Dental Practice

  • Johan Aps


This chapter contains examples of different types of dysplasias on radiographic images taken with different radiographic techniques and their radiographic differential diagnoses. The aim of this chapter is to familiarize the reader with the different results of the techniques explained in the previous chapters. This is a grasp of what general pediatric dental practice could provide so at least the reader will get a better feel about how the images turn out and what information can be retrieved from them.
