Abstract

This illustrated article is reviewing currently accepted and recommended indications for use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in orthodontics.

We present CBCT of teeth anomalies, impacted canines, supernumerary teeth, troubles of teeth eruption, and external roots resorption related to orthodontic teeth movements.

The CBCT should be justified for each patient, and should present added value for diagnostic and/or for treatment planning.

The orthodontist needs to interpret and is responsible for all of the field of view.
