Abstract
CBCT (Cone Beam Computer Tomography) has been widely used in various fields of oral cavity because of its high resolution and low radiation. Through the comparison between CBCT and traditional spiral CT, it showed the advantages of CBCT in orthodontics field and exampled how to use CBCT for the diagnosis and examination of oral diseases. It thoroughly explained how CBCT technology can be applied to orthodontics, such as 3D cephalometry, location of impacted teeth and supernumerary teeth, orthodontic expansion, 3D reconstruction and analysis of bone mass. It explains that CBCT technology is a leap of oral 3D imaging technology. The reconstruction method can match the oral maxillofacial anatomy characteristics, and can provide 3D images of high quality for clinicians. It is useful to understand the disease directly, accurately, and totally. It is great significance to improve the reliability, the level of treatment and the prognostic evaluation of the clinical diagnosis.
