The validity of transverse intermaxillary analysis by traditional PA cephalometry compared with cone-beam computed tomography.
However, the paramount importance of posteroanterior (PA) cephalometry should be stressed as it allows professionals to examine facial asymmetry in the transverse plane while allowing the clinical observation of an individual's face in frontal view (Leonardi, Annunziata, & Caltabiano, 2008; Ulkur, Ozdemir, Germec-Cakan, & Kaspar, 2016).
Various methods have been used to evaluate facial characteristics, such as anthropometry photogrammetry computer imaging and cephalometry.
It covers the indications for prescribing 3D scans and applications of cone beam computed tomography to dental fields from orthodontics to implantology, periodontology, endodontics, and temporomandibular disorders, including 3D analysis of soft tissues, airway spaces, and impacted teeth, as well as the growth and development of basal bones, cone beam computed tomography analysis of the maxilla and mandible, the evolution of cephalometry, computer assisted guided surgery, and medicolegal issues.
Cephalometry is a standardized lateral radiograph of the head and neck showing upper airway bony and soft-tissue structures.
Cephalometry is a relatively inexpensive method and permits a good assessment of the soft tissue elements that define the soft palate and its surrounding structures.
The effects of ACM on craniofacial metrics may be clarified through the utilization of an established approach not readily employed: orthodontic cephalometry.
ActeonA Imaging presents its new X-Mind trium dental panoramic upgradable to 3D (CBCT) and/or cephalometry.
The element of cephalometry for the dentist is of utmost importance and it forms an integral part of the diagnostic procedure that is followed by an orthodontist in treatment planning.
These methods have included fluoroscopy, videoendoscopy, nasopharyngoscopy, cephalometry, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography.
This review focuses on the utility of individual UA evaluation tools including physical and functional examination; and the use of imaging methods such as conventional and electron beam computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), acoustic reflection, nasal pharyngoscopy, cephalometry, and fluoroscopy.
