Abstract

This radiological study was designed to compare atrophic alveolar bone of maxilla among female patient in postmenopausal age with CBCT. Patients were divided in three groups considering T-score of osteodensitometric analysis. All patients were completely edentulous in maxilla and had their maxillofacial area scanned with CBCT. The results of the study indicated that osteoporosis group had a higher alveolar bone in maxilla, but least bone density. This study suggests that it CBCT measurements correlate with osteodensitometric analysis data.
