A major advantage of CBCT is the ability to allow single-step data acquisition that computes all our diagnostic information and substitutes several conventional procedures of record taking. Yet, there are several protocols for CBCT imaging as regards the interocclusal separation, each with a drastic shortcoming. The authors herein propose a protocol that offers acceptable inter-occlusal separation during CBCT imaging using a radiolucent splint that guarantees reproducibility, undisrupted facial form, centric condylar position concurrently with feasibility for occlusal analysis, separation of the maxillary and mandibular teeth and hence digital simulation of the orthodontic treatment.
