Today’s iCat cone beam (CBCT) facial scans with radiology reports are extraordinary.  It’s extraordinary what we can do with 3D software, animations, colorization and segmentations.  The applications are stunning and revealing like we never knew or had before.  Once we utilize this, we cannot be without it. 

Patients want to be well informed. They want to be treated by a doctor and team who are leading edge. Let’s take an informative journey utilizing CBCT imaging with 3D information for orthodontics. 

Dr. Grummons will present 3D from the orthodontic perspective and how 3D CBCT cone beam information influences 3D/4D diagnosis and treatment today.  He will emphasize therapy integration by the orthodontist with restorative colleagues, periodontists, oral surgeons, and ENT specialists teaming up for best patient care and effective treatment using iCat 3D cone beam technology. Once we discover and apply CBCT information, we can never go back to only 2D. 

Man’s mind once changed by a new idea, can never return to its original dimension.
