In orthodontic and pediatric practice the development of the hard tissues is evaluated radiographically, but the development of the neural tissue within the bone tissue is not evaluated. In this review the emphasis is placed on two neuro-osteologic interrelations that can be observed on profile radiographs and orthopantomograms, respectively. One is the… CONTINUE READING
