The commencement of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) apparatus in dentistry changed the way of practicing oral and maxillofacial radiology. CBCT was embraced into the dental practice very rapidly because of its compact size, low cost, low ionizing radiation exposure as compared to medical computed tomography. CBCT also provides 3D evaluation of the maxillofacial area with minimal distortion, as similar to medical CT. This article gives an overview of basic principles of CBCT technology and reviews its implications and limitations in oral and maxillofacial region.

Keywords: Radiology, Cone beam computed tomography, Principle, Advantages, Limitations, Applications.
