2D Lateral Cephalometric X-Ray


2D Lateral Cephalometric X-Ray

Lateral cephalometric radiograph is best limited to patients with a skeletal discrepancy and/or
where anteroposterior movement of the incisors is planned. In a small proportion of patients,
it may be helpful to monitor growth to aid the planning and timing of treatment by taking serial
cephalometric radiographs.
The main indication for cephalometric radiographs is cephalometric tracing—analysis of
relationships between teeth and bone based on cephalometric landmarks and performed
according to many systems.
It is a type of dental xray that is use to help clinician/dentist in diagnose patient’s profile. It is
taken before braces treatment started.
