Diagnostic methods

The examination and diagnosis of dental conditions vary enormously around the world. They are dependent on multiple factors, including: the resources available for diagnosis, the general condition of teeth in that population, the ability to examine an animal if infection with diseases such as rabies is likely, and the willingness to keep an animal away from the work place for periods necessary for diagnosis and treatment.

This chapter will include information on the use of equipment such as endoscopy and radiography, but also refers to diagnostic methods that could be used in locations where resources such as these are not available.
