Dentistry has come through many advances in all its branches over the last few decades. With such advancements, the accurate diagnostic tools, specially imaging methods, have become very much necessary. From the initial film based intra-oral periapical X-rays, advanced radiographic techniques like computed tomography, cone beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound have also proved their importance in current dentistry. The three-dimensional imaging systems have resulted in easier assessment of complex cranio-facial tissues and accurate diagnosis of various lesions at early stages. This present paper is about to review the recent advancements in radiographic imaging technology and their applications in various perspectives of dentistry.
