Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is having three dimensional technology which has revolutionized the imaging of the maxillofacial region significantly in time that it has a very wide range of applications in all the fields of dentistry ranging from diagnosis to the treatment planning. CBCT has often been considered as the “gold standard” for imaging the oral and maxillofacial area and will become a part of everyday life in coming decades. It should not be considered as replacement of panoramic or conventional projection radiographic applications but rather as a complimentary modality for specific applications.
