Abstract

This chapter discusses how the latest radiographic technology-cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)-contributes to authors' understanding of physiological and pathological root resorption, with a special focus on orthodontics patients. This discussion traces CBCT's emergence as an accurate and reliable methodology for assessing root angulation and morphology, which are among the most well-studied risk factors for root resorption. In addition, the chapter discusses the contribution of CBCT to the authors' understanding of other clinically relevant aspects of root morphology, such as dentoalveolar compensations and dilacerations, as well as the emerging use of CBCT root imaging to gain insights into the biological connections between root morphology and complex craniofacial anomalies. Overall, CBCT is a powerful radiographic technology that, when combined with the equally powerful genetic testing, will enable orthodontists to generate more accurate diagnoses and individualized treatment plans for their patients.
