Primal Pictures is an online interactive resource that provides a multimedia overview of human anatomy.
Primal Pictures Dentistry, also called 3D Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry, is the Dentistry module of Primal Pictures, and includes 3D modelling of more than 100 views of the key anatomy for dentistry. Views include oral and nasal cavities, dentition, individual teeth in 3D and cross section, nerves, larynx and pharynx, sinuses, the eye, and the brain.
The resource also features MRI images, photographic slides, movies and animations, and specialised clinical content which includes 3D views of progressive dental conditions such as caries and gingivitis, and interactive 3D nerve views of intraoral injections.
A clinical text section covers a range of subjects in a subject guide format under the headings of embryogenesis, examination, teeth, dental anaesthesia, spread of infection, face, joints overview, and pterygopalatine fossa.
