Anatomy of the Teeth 1

    Article metrics


    TO the histologist, the zoologist, and the human anatomist the teeth are organs of considerable interest, from the points of view of their minute structure, their development, together with their variations, as well as from the diseases to which they are subject; and yet our literature has been deficient in a work on “Dental Anatomy, Human and Comparative.” Text-books, such as Quain and Sharpey's “Anatomy,” give us full information with reference to their structure, form, and development in man, whilst in Owen's superb monograph on “Odontography,” as in his “Anatomy of Vertebrated Animals,” their zoological aspect is treated of in detail. Mr. Charles S. Tomes has filled the deficiency in the volume under consideration, in a manner so satisfactory that we feel assured that his work will take a high place among Messrs. Churchill's valuable “Manuals.”
