AS17B39B - CBCT Helps Detect Jaw Alignment Problems and the Hidden Vertical Dimension

Apr 24, 2017 8:30am ‐ Apr 24, 2017 8:50am


3D technology can provide the orthodontist a more accurate diagnosis than 2D radiographs. Dr. Kaspers will show the key to structural diagnosis-- the Five Condylar Positions. He will show the clinician how to evaluate your orthodontic cases in all three dimensions (anterior-posterior, transverse, and vertical).

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the key to structural diagnosis – the Five Condylar Positions.
  • Explain why you cannot find centric relation in 40% of your cases without using a CBCT.
  • Explain when and how to change the morphology of the temporomandibular joint so you can achieve a seated condylar position.
