INTRODUCTION Root resorption can cause damage in orthodontic patients. Digital subtraction radiography (DSR) is a useful resource for the detection of mineral losses. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of digital radiography (DR) and DSR in detecting simulated external root resorption. Examiner agreement between the 2 techniques was also evaluated. METHODS Root resorptions of various sizes were simulated on the apical and lingual aspects of 49 teeth from 9 dry human… CONTINUE READING
