hard dental tissues or dental hard tissues?

Postby mysticflower » Tue May 19, 2009 11:46 am

Hello everyone!!!

I'm new to the group and will start by asking you a question about some word order....
I had to do a translation regarding hard dental tissues and was told that the correct order would be '" dental hard tissues" or " hard dental tissues" could you please enlighten me which is the correct order.

Thank you. Nice day to all!!

i think 'hard dental tissues' differentiates them from other hard tissues in the body.

'dental hard tissues' differentiates them from dental soft tissues.
