  • Historically, obtaining several periapical radiographs has been recommended to diagnose horizontal root fractures. Assessing the 3-dimensional orientation of a fracture is correlated to treatment and outcome. However, conventional radiography yields only limited information for accurate diagnosis. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a relatively new and useful technology, which provides an auxiliary imaging modality to supplement conventional radiography for evaluating horizontal root… CONTINUE READING
