Cases I Treated Differently Because of CBCT Imaging

May 4, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 4, 2019 8:30am

The information obtained with CBCT imaging in your practice will introduce new metrics to your diagnosis and treatment planning process. Three dimensional airway analysis, improved visualization of the TMJs and the recognition of skeletal asymmetries and transverse discrepancies will alter how you treat your patients. 3D assessment of ectopic teeth can lead to more effective management. Unexpected findings may warrant medical referral. These topics as well as dosimetry and appropriate exposure protocol selection will be discussed in this lecture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Choose CBCT exposure protocols that are appropriate for your diagnostic and treatment planning needs.
  • Understand how 3D airway analysis and TMJ visualization can be incorporated into your diagnosis and treatment planning process.
  • Recognize some of the developmental anomalies that can be seen within the 3D field of views commonly used in orthodontic imaging.
