Example text

Given that CBCT has substantially more data than 2D radiographs and, therefore, captures more lesions both within and outside the dentomaxillofacial area, the rate of incidental findings is considerably higher in CBCT scans than in traditional radiographs. , 2007). The use of larger FOV images typically preferred by orthodontists as opposed to those favored by most other dental providers increases the likelihood of incidental findings in the imaged volume and its attendant consequences. Furthermore, the utilization of CBCT as a screening test with the expectation of discovering incidental findings when there are no relevant signs or symptoms or other appropriate justification for undertaking this type of imaging is not justified due to the risks of radiation (see also Chapter 6).

Recent studies show that CBCT provides enhanced visualization of roots, making it a valuable tool for assessing pre- or post-orthodontic root resorption and parallelism. , 2010). , 2012). , 2009). For maxillary incisors, root resorption is not diagnosed 20% of the time with panoramic radiographs and 14% of the time with CBCT images. Finally, while 2D radiographs provide visualization of only the apex and the mesial and distal root surfaces, CBCT imaging adds insights into the effects of treatment on buccal and lingual root surfaces.

Root morphology, resorption, and angulations Root length, form, and resorption traditionally have been assessed via periapical radiographs, while post-orthodontic root parallelism and relationships customarily are determined using panoramic radiographs. Recent studies show that CBCT provides enhanced visualization of roots, making it a valuable tool for assessing pre- or post-orthodontic root resorption and parallelism. , 2010). , 2012). , 2009).
