Orthodontic Records

Orthodontic records are used as a study aide, in order to provide you with customized orthodontic treatment plan for your situation.

Typically, orthodontic records consist of:

Dental Impressions

Dental impressions are used to obtain a replica of a patient’s mouth. myORTHODONTIST offers iTERO (TM) digital impressions at all of our offices.

3 Dimensional (3D) Dental Imaging

The i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System allows your orthodontist to provide quick, comfortable and precise orthodontic imaging. Three-dimensional imaging records can also help to detect and evaluate problems, before they become serious, by accurately measuring bone and jaw deformities, assessing bone lesions and changes of the jaw, and detecting other pathologies including cysts, tumours, and disease. 

Our office is pleased to offer i-CAT 3D Cone Beam Dental Imaging for patients receiving orthodontic treatment.

Panoramic X-Ray 

Also known as a panorex or pan, this x-ray is a two-dimensional and displays both the upper and lower jaws and teeth, in the same film.

Cephalomietric X-Ray

The cephalometric x-ray, or ceph, captures the side profile of the patient, from the top of their head to just below the tip of the chin.

Intraoral and Extraoral Photos

Intraoral (inside the mouth) and extraoral (outside the mouth) photos are taken of the patient’s teeth and face. These photos are used to determine the current external classification of the patient’s profile, as well as a permanent record kept on file as a part of the patient’s dental records.

Orthodontic records may be taken at different intervals during orthodontic treatment to monitor the patient’s progress, and when orthodontic treatment has been completed.
