Increasingly, dentists, orthodontists and oral surgeons are using Cone Beam CT to assess the Airway. An Airway Study integrates closely with Orthodontic and Orthognathic treatments. This imaging allows for a functional analysis of both occlusion and TMJ functionality and how it affects the Airway. The likelihood of an optimal outcome is increased by this more complete approach in treatment planning and can make a significant difference in the patient’s overall health.
