Sialolithiasis is the most common obstructive conditions of the major salivary glands, among which submandibular salivary gland calculi are more prevalent. Various imaging modalities are routinely practiced these days for diagnosing sialolithiasis. Today, the fast acquisition of a 3D image using cone beam CT (CBCT) has enabled us to overcome the temporal limitations of medical CT and MRI image acquisition. An initial and precise diagnosis will aid in an effective treatment. We present a series of 2 case reports wherein CBCT sialography was performed to demonstrate the obstructive salivary gland diseases for better interpretation of the ductal system of the gland. CBCT promises to modernize the practice of oral and maxillofacial stomatologist by offering foremost advantages like high resolution, less scan time dose to and the patient.
