Swift diagnosis of odontogenic tumours can allow appropriate emergency dentistry work to be carried out.
Bone Diseases of the Jaws, a review article by Pieter Johannes Slootweg of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center department of pathology in the Netherlands, covers a variety of different ailments relating to the unique bones found in the human mouth.
On the issue of odontogenic tumours, it calls for the necessary action to be taken to ensure emergency dentistry can be performed on patients once they are diagnosed.
“It is obvious that a precise diagnosis is mandatory … to avoid delay in treatment of genuine odontogenic neoplasms,” writes Professor Slootweg.
His paper notes the unique aspects of jaw bones, in part due to the way they are formed but also because of the germs that they are exposed to due to their location in the mouth.
Professor Slootweg was formerly professor of oral pathology at the Utrecht University Medical Center from 1995, some 14 years after gaining his medical doctorate at the university’s Medical School.
