This is a fully illustrated book which is designed to help students and practitioners to identify two similar looking diseases at ease and effectively distinguish and diagnose the real disorder with the help of text, tables and coloured pictures. Knowledge of the differential diagnosis expedites the process of reaching a correct diagnosis thus avoiding a lot of suffering to the patient. This is a valuable reference tool for the practitioner and students that helps to understand signs/symptoms, causes of common findings/complaints and differentiating certain diseases that are closely identical. A valuable resource book for graduates, physicians and practitioners. Section 1: Dental Diseases, 1. Morphology of Primary Dentition, 2. Developmental Disturbances of Teeth, 3. Pain, 4. Pulp, 5.
