For the clinical assessment of the dental patients, imaging is an important diagnostic adjunct. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems have been designed for three dimensionally imaging of hard tissues of the maxillofacial region including the teeth and surrounding tissues. CBCT is a new application of computed tomography (CT) that generates image data at lower cost and absorbed doses than conventional CT used for medical radiology. Most of the attention regarding CBCT imaging has focused on applications for dental implant placement, oral surgery, endodontics, orthodontics and temporomandibular joint imaging.
         The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of this CBCT technology and an understanding of its basics and the clinical applications in dentistry.
