Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The current trend in orthodontic records is toward an integrated virtual 3-dimensional (3D) model with soft tissue, hard tissue, and dentition. An important part of this complete 3D record is the dental model. Cone beam computed tomography allows the taking of all radiographic records and the creation of virtual dental models out of a single scan. The virtual dental models created out of cone beam computed tomography come with significant diagnostic additions, changing the way electronic casts are used.
