Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has been one of the most revolutionary innovations in the field of dentistry. Comprehensive visualization and records of the craniofacial complex have been goals in dentistry. These approaches have evolved dentofacial imaging. These tasks have been performed by means of plaster, digital photographs across time, and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has emerged as a comprehensive imaging technology for dentistry. Two dimensional radiographs are insufficient, especially in complex cases like impacted teeth, supernumerary teeth and surgeries. CBCT images provide better detailed information than conventional 2D radiographs and are user friendly. Soft tissues, skull, airway and the dentition can be observed and measured on CBCT images in a 1:1 ratio. This article focuses on numerous applications of cone beam volumetric technology in dentistry.

Keywords: CBCT, 3D imaging technology, Diagnosis, Dentistry, Implant.
