CBCT to Evaluate Internal Root Resorption

CBCT can be used to evaluate the extent of root resorption. Before this technology, we would have to excavate a resorptive defect to evaluated the extent and restorability. The CBCT allows us to see in all dimensions the extent of a resorptive defect. In this case, the non-restorability was determined with CBCT alone. This saves the patient and clinician time and money.
