What is high definition digital radiograph technology and how do you use it during assessments?

One of the most important assessments before starting treatment is assessing the roots and bone levels to ensure you are suitable for treatment. One of the main risk factors with brace treatment is root shortening. In all patients with braces there will be some minor changes. However, in some cases this can be more severe and often it is not possible to tell if someone is at risk, but there are certain conditions which can make you more at risk of root changes. Having high definition digital radiographs help us assess the roots more precisely to assess and plan treatment appropriately.
