CBCT-Assessment of Morphological Characteristics of the Alveolar Bone in the Aesthetic Zone
Abstract: The total number of the assessed teeth on Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) x-ray images of the test patients in our investigation is 528 frontal teeth (176 central incisors, 176 lateral incisors and 176 canines). In every one of the assessed teeth are made two measurements in mm measurement of the height of the facial and the height of the palatal alveolar bone plate. The reference points for these two measurements are the most apical point of the apex of the root and the most coronary point of the marginal alveolar edge on the vestibular and palatal side. The analysis of the results showed that there is no significant difference between the mean hight of labial and palatal bone.
