  • Abstract

    All permanent teeth may show microscopic amounts of root resorption that is clinically insignificant and radiographically undetected. Root resorption is a condition associated with either a physiologic or a pathologic process resulting in a loss of dentin, cementum, and/or bone. Permanent teeth have the potential to clinically undergo significant external root resorption when affected by several stimuli. Root resorption is considered as one of the complications which can be caused due to orthodontic treatment. However, there is a lot of ambiguity regarding how much resorption is actually taking place. Various studies for the last 40–50 years which have given various contradictory statements on root resorption. Some of them have gone to 2–5% of resorption have been reported. There are many reasons which have been given for root resorption happening right from tooth movement and the amount of force applied. This article is a review of various aspects of root resorption following orthodontic treatment. This study aims at the various aspects of root resorption following orthodontic treatment.
