The introduction of CBCT means three dimensional data can now be used to locate an impacted or ectopic tooth and plan its path of retrieval. CBCT viewers designed for dental purposes may offer advantages over general purpose DICOM viewers. This webinar will explore the contribution of CBCT to the diagnosis and successful retrieval of ectopic maxillary canines.
- understand when to request a CBCT for ectopic maxillary canines
- an outline of how to read the scan
- know the difference between axial, coronal sagittal, arch cross-section and custom sections and 3D volume renders
- planning a retrieval path for an ectopic tooth
- know what to tell the oral surgeon to maximise successful retrieval
- when CBCT is helpful in treating ectopic maxillary canines
- which multiplanar reconstructions are available for diagnosis
- when to use a 3D volume render
- know the framework for analysing a CBCT
- be aware of what to consider when planning a retrieval path
- what to communicate to the oral surgeon when requesting exposure of an ectopic tooth.
