3-D imaging in dentistry

3D Imaging is one of the most important gears for orthodontists to assess and best size and form of craniofacial structures. Orthodontists frequently use 2-dimensional (2D) static imaging procedures, but depth of structures cannot be learnt and limited with 2D imaging. Three-dimensional (3D) imaging has been industrialized in the early of 1990's and has increased a prized place in dentistry, particularly in orthodontics. In 3D diagnostic imaging, a series of functional annals is gathered using certain technical equipment, processed by a computer and later presented on a 2D monitor to current the illusion of depth.
