Abstract: There was a highly significant difference between the 2D and 3D images in the width of the canine crown (P < 0.001) and in canine angulation to the occlusal plane. Moreover, there was a highly significant difference between the DPT and Scanora CBCT images in canine angulation to the midline (P < 0.001). There was also a significant difference between 2D and 3D images with respect to canine location (P = 0.0074 for group A and P = 0.0008 for group B). The presence or absence of root resorption of the lateral incisor was also significantly different in both groups (P = 0.0201 and P < 0.001 for groups A and B, respectively). Detection of central incisor root resorption was significantly different between the Accuitomo and DPT images (P = 0.045). There was also a significant difference in the severity of lateral incisor root resorption between the DPT and CBCT in both groups (P = 0.02). The results of this study suggest that CBCT is more sensitive than conventional radiography for both canine localization and identification of root resorption of adjacent teeth.
