This lecture will focus on the use of CBCT technologies in the orthodontic practice for patient diagnosis and treatment planning. Treatment simulation modules as well as use of 3D radiographs for patient care will be reviewed. The lecture will highlight the use of software to integrate the CBCT, patient photographs and optical scan to form a complete patient profile for diagnostics and planning.
Recognize the benefit of the use of CBCT in diagnosis of the orthodontic patient.
Evaluate the propriety of use of CBCT integrated software for healthcare delivery of therapeutic archwires and clear aligners.
Propose treatment based on root/bone evaluation for the orthodontic patient from a CBCT.
