3D imaging for the Pediatric/Orthodontic Practices
Francisco Eraso, DDS, MS, MS, MSD
Accurate diagnostic imaging of the craniofacial complex is not only an essential factor but also an indispensable step that helps the pediatric dentist and orthodontist to come up with a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. CBCT provides the image accuracy and proper visualization, allowing you to see much more than a panoramic or cephalometric image, thus improving diagnosis and treatment planning.

Learning Objectives:
 • Understand the value of 3D CBCT for the pediatric and orthodontic patients.
 • Learn how to explore systematically CBCT 3D information maximizing ortho/pedo diagnosis and treatment planning.
