Cone beam computed tomography has been a diagnostic imaging modality, providing high-quality and accurate three dimensional representations of the hard tissues of the maxillofacial skeleton. This technology uses a low dose of radiation and provides increased precision of anatomical structures compared to computed tomography. Using 3-D imaging better diagnosis, treatment planning and surgical experience can be achieved to improve patient care. This review provides an overview of CBCT and highlights the potential application of CBCT in the field of periodontology and implantology.
