Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an established technology in the present era of Dentistry. It is the modern third dimension which is applied, with lower radiation dose compared to conventional CT in field of oral maxillofacial region. Artifacts can seriously degrade the quality of computed tomographic (CBCT) images, sometimes to the point of making them diagnostically unusable. Every dentist must be familiar with these limitations while interpreting CBCT images. To optimize image quality, it is necessary to understand why artifacts occur and how they can be prevented or suppressed. This article highlights the causes of artifacts on CBCT images.
