Resumen

La práctica ortodóncica reconoce la importancia de la radiografía cefálica lateral, aunque en realidad la limita a un análisis cuantitativo, por lo cual se realizó una revisión de literatura con el fin de valorar las características morfológicas que a simple vista pueden ser evaluadas en la radiografía y que son herramientas para predecir factores de riesgo, pronóstico y estabilidad. Se concluye que la radiografía cefálica lateral da una visión más amplia de los patrones de crecimiento craneofacial, los cuales pueden ser modificados por diversas estructuras —como la base del cráneo, la postura craneocervical, las vías aéreas y la posición del hueso hioides, sin dejar de valorar las vértebras cervicales y la morfología de la sínfisis mandibular— que se constituyen en factores diagnósticos importantes en el momento de tomar decisiones clínicas. Por tanto, la radiografía cefálica lateral brinda información cualitativa importante que no se puede obviar y que permite llegar a un diagnóstico más acertado.
