A–Z of diagnoses

The mouth, jaws and face, head and neck, may only account for a fairly small proportion of a body’s volume. However, this part of the body is incredibly dense in terms of multiple critical bodily functions. Accordingly, the list of diagnoses of oral and maxillofacial conditions is long and varied.

All diagnoses are described and discussed at different levels of detail: we give a brief overview, a slightly more in-depth description and a detailed discussion accepting that different levels and degrees of information will be wanted by different people and by the same people at different times.
