Case Study 01: Uncovering Mesiodens 3D Visualization

Presented by:

In this case study, accurate and precise localization of an inverted mesiodens allowed the orthodontist to delay extraction without impacting the orthodontic treatment; this allowed them to provide better overall dental experience for the patient. Invasive treatment on a young patient can often be scary to both patient and their parents; nobody wants their child to have surgery, especially if it could have been avoided. Because dental fear and anxiety acquired in childhood can persist into adulthood, I view these choices as critical in the prevention of negative associations with dental treatment, thereby assisting my patients to be confident in their oral health in the long run.
