Root Surface Changes in Endodontically Treated Teeth following Orthodontic Movement
CE Hours: 1.0
Description: Orthodontically induced external root resorption has been labeled an unavoidable consequence of orthodontic tooth movement (OTM). The objective of this study was to investigate the change in surface area (mm^2) and volume (mm^3) of endodontically treated teeth (ETT) compared with contralateral teeth with a vital pulp (VPT) after OTM.
At the conclusion of this article, the reader will be able to:
- List risk factors associated with orthodontically induced external root resorption
- Explain the safety of orthodontic tooth movement following root canal treatment with patients and dentists
- Utilize cone-beam computed tomography to recognize orthodontically induced external root resorption
