2018 Annual Session Conference


Emerging Applications of CBCT in Orthodontic Diagnosis and Treatment Planning


May 5, 2018 2:05pm ‐ May 5, 2018 2:50pm

Description

The continued evolution of CBCT imaging technology including its reduced radiation dose combined with scientific evidence for its broader applications is readily expanding its utility in orthodontics. Besides the enhanced information from CBCT for the traditionally well-understood sagittal and vertical dimensions, and for impacted teeth, it is proving to be a useful tool in the differential diagnosis of skeletal and dental transverse discrepancies, asymmetries, and dentoalveolar boundary conditions. Additionally, recent studies are enhancing our understanding on the limits of adaptability of bone to orthodontic tooth movement. Finally, CBCT imaging is proving to be a valuable tool in the integration of precision and virtual treatment planning in the orthodontic practice. Dr. Kapila will provide an evidence-based update on these emerging applications of CBCT imaging to everyday orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the evidence for emerging uses of CBCT in orthodontic therapy.
  • Recognize how to extract information from CBCT imaging in evolving areas of its uses for personalized orthodontic treatment.
  • Comprehend the use of CBCT imaging for virtual treatment and biomechanical planning in orthodontics.

Speaker(s):

  • Sunil Kapila, BDS, MS, PhD, University of California San Francisco
