Is the root of a tooth ever considered before putting the bracket?

Yes, that is why the dentist or orthodontist takes the proper x-rays before bracketing the teeth. Later during the treatment, root inclinations should be considered too, and that could only be seen if more x-rays (panoramic) are taken.
