For years we have treated cases without clearly knowing whether the roots of teeth remain safely within the alveolar housing. The use of CBCT as a diagnostic element and for post treatment evaluation is providing information to help us move teeth more safely.
Analyze slices out of DICOM scans to evaluate the alveolar housing border limitations.
Adjust treatment plans in relation to the alveolar housing.
Use judgment on the use of corticotomy and bone grafting to improve the alveolar housing.
