Carpal radiographs in orthodontic treatment.

Abstract

The pubescent period offers the best opportunity to accomplish the objectives of orthodontic treatment in the shortest time. Treatment during the period of maximum growth activity reduces some of the uncertainties associated with early treatment. Carpal radiographs can be used as a guide to determine the onset of the adolescent growth spurt and hence provide the clinician with a diagnostic and planning aid to optimize treatment efficiency.
