Embryological Origins of Dental Anomalies
Disturbances can occur within each stage of tooth development, but with early diagnosis and intervention, complications can be avoided, minimizing the need for subsequent treatment.
After reading this course, the participant should be able to:
- Explain the stages of tooth development.
- Discuss the physiologic basis of each stage, and how each affects the next stage of odontogenesis.
- Apply this clinical knowledge to aid early diagnosis and intervention of tooth anomalies.
