The Stafne’s bone cavity is a depression of the mandible on the lingual surface. The Stafne defect is normal anatomical variant because of depression created by salivary gland tissue associated with the submandibular gland. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is newer radiological tool for diagnosing maxillofacial diseases and dental implant planning. The Stafne bony cavity is incidental finding in dental radiographs and CBCT. We are reporting five cases of Stafne bone cavity with pictures of CBCT to emphasize the preferable imaging modality for diagnosing Stafne’s bone cavity.

Keywords: Stafne bone cavity, Static bone cavity, Stafne cyst, Idiopathic bone cavity.
