Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is special x-ray equipment, which is used where regular facial or dental x-ray machines are not able to produce appropriate results. This machine emits a lot more radiations than a regular x-ray machine, which reduces its application on a regular basis. This is a type of CT scanners that uses special type of technology to produce 3D images of nerve paths, dental structures, bones and soft tissues. Images obtained from CBCT, make the analysis easier and allows for more precise dental treatment planning. CBCT gives you detailed images of bones; it is mostly performed to diagnose nasal cavity, jaw disease, sinuses, dentition and face’s bony structure. This procedure is most commonly used for detecting, measuring and treating jaw tumors, reconstructive surgery and cephalometric analysis etc.
The clinical application of cephalometric analysis, however, is popularly known as cephalometry. It comprises of analysis of skeletal and dental relation in your head. It is generally applied as a treatment planning tool by orthodontists, dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons. This analysis depends on cephalometric radiography to analyze relationship between bony and soft tissue landmarks. It can also be used to diagnose facial growth abnormalities before the treatment; in middle to evaluate the progress and at the end to conclude that the goals of treatment have been achieved. There can be 2 types of cephalometric radiographs; Lateral cephalometric radiograph & Posteroanteriors (P-A) cephalometric radiograph. Lateral cephalometric is a radiograph of head taken perpendicular to the sagittal plane of patient’s whilst Posteroanteriors is the radiograph of head taken with x-ray, perpendicular to the coronal plane of patient, with the x-ray beam source behind the head and cassette in front of patient’s face.
