Thus, for example, mandibular setback surgery decreases the airway sagittal cross-section at the soft palate but not at the posterior nasal spine. , 2011). These findings have implications for selecting optimal surgical approaches for OSA patients and are presented in greater detail in Chapter 22.

The sci- entific evidence for the utility of CBCT in both refining diagnosis and modifying treatment plans for significant numbers of impacted teeth validates its use for impacted teeth. Some of this scientific evidence on the superiority of CBCT to 2D radiography could be applicable to supernumerary and transposed teeth. From a clinical standpoint, besides providing detailed information on impacted and transposed tooth location and associated root resorption and pathologies, CBCT facilitates the accurate definition of the relationship of these teeth to neighboring structures and teeth, assists in planning surgical access and bond placement, and helps in defining the optimal direction for extrusion into the oral cavity.
