Dr. Robert L. Boyd: The Editor's Corner

The Future of Imaging

In the near future, we will also be able to relate two different time points in treatment with these combined IS-CBCT images, allowing us to determine three dimensional differences in tooth movement with 6° of freedom. This will require accurate superimposition on a reference such as the cranial base, which changes very little as growth completes in adolescents and even less in adults. We are already using Anatomage software to measure 3D tooth displacements against a volume reference in the cranium. Align Technology is finalizing its own software, called Quantify, which will be made available to all qualified investigators for a better understanding how teeth really move in space (click on link to see video: Fig. 4).


On the cover: A montage illustrates Herbst appliance patients before treatment and one, six, and 32 years after treatment, as discussed in the article by Drs. Pancherz and Bjerklin.
