Diagnosis

Diagnoses of dental conditions are always a challenge – this may be because we tend to have preconceived or fixed ideas: we see so much of the “common” conditions that we might miss the rare causes.

This Dentaljuce module concentrates on the diagnosis of dental pain, caries, and cracked tooth sysndrome (CTS).
