Imaging of hard and soft tissue of the oral cavity is important for dentistry. However, medical computed tomography, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), nor MRI enables soft and hard tissue imaging simultaneously. Some MRI sequences were shown to provide fast soft and hard tissue imaging of hydrogen, which increased the interest in dental MRI. Recently, MRI allowed direct visualization of cancellous bone, intraoral mucosa, and dental pulp despite that cortical bone and dental roots are indirectly visualized. MRI seems to be adequate for many indications that CBCT is currently used for: implant treatment and inflammatory diseases of the tooth.
