Comparison of Endodontic Treatment Planning with CBCT and Periapical Radiography
Accurate and confident treatment planning is an essential part of endodontology. Diagnostic imaging helps the clinician to visualize the dental anatomy in areas that cannot be seen clinically. For years, periapical radiographs ...
Accuracy of Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) in Determining Root Canal Working Length
Working length determination is a key element to root canal therapy. Current techniques to determine working length include using apex locators and periapical films. A new technology, cone-beam volumetric tomography ...
Predicting Adoption of Cone Beam Computed Tomography among Pediatric Dentists
Purpose: To explain why some pediatric dentists adopt Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), using Rogers’s “Diffusion of Innovations Model.” Methods: A 20-item electronic questionnaire was distributed to 7,171 members of ...
CBCT Assessment of Three-Dimensional Changes of the Upper Lip after Le Fort I Maxillary Advancement
Hypothesis: This study investigates how the upper lip responds in three dimensions to Le Fort I maxillary osteotomy with advancement. It was hypothesized that there are no significant changes in the upper lip position, ...
Evaluation of Vertical Components of the Mandible Using Three-Dimensional Radiographs
Introduction: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association of various linear and angular parameters of subjects’ mandibles with different craniofacial skeletal patterns, utilizing 3D CBCT images from three ...
