Lecture Description
The vast majority of orthodontists today only take 2D radiographs of their patients. Unfortunately, 2D radiographs do not help the clinician detect a fulcrum in the asymptomatic patient. Dr. Ron Roth knew that this fulcrum existed on many of his patients --he would have loved a CBCT scan machine. Dr. Bob Kaspers will show how a CBCT scan can help orthodontists diagnose their patients more accurately than with 2D radiographs. He will also show the clinician the importance of addressing the vertical dimension to enable the patient to achieve a seated condylar position at the end of orthodontic treatment. If you want to make your referring dentists happy, you will want to learn this technique.

Learning Objectives

• Identify how to improve your diagnostic capabilities by utilizing 3D imaging
• Recognize possible treatment modalities that become available when using 3D imaging
• Realize the various treatment options that clinicians can access when using 3D imaging
• Identify new treatment areas that can be explored with the use of 3D imaging
