BACKGROUND 3D cone beam imaging allows localization of impacted canines, using spatial relationships, with excellent tissue contrast. The aim of this project was to assess the degree of difficulty for the treatment of impacted canines, based on the 3D information provided by cone beam imaging. METHODS 3D cone beam images taken from subjects with impacted… CONTINUE READING
