The most accurate method of assessing bone level is surgical exposure which is considered to be the gold standard as it aids in accurate detection of the extent and type of bone loss as well as to evaluate bone gain after treatment. Radiographs are valuable diagnostic tools which act as an adjunct to clinical examination. The present case report aimed to evaluate the accuracy of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the diagnosis of horizontal periodontal defects mainly in buccal and lingual/palatal regions where the two dimensional (2D) may be inappropriate. There was high correlation between surgical and CBCT measurements which proved that CBCT was highly accurate in the measurement of periodontal defects. CBCT is a useful aid in periodontal examination and diagnosis and it offers improved visualization of the morphology of periodontal defects. Thus we conclude that CBCT can effectively reproduce the clinical measurements of horizontal periodontal bone defects.
