Emphasizing the Applications of Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Endodontics

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) for dento-facial region imaging is a real shift from 2D to 3D imaging. Two Greek words, tomos (slices) and graphien (write), derive from the word tomography. In order to provide rapid data acquisition of the entire FOV, CBCT was developed as an alternative to traditional CT and there is comparatively less radiation exposure. It produces 3D images of high resolution in axial, saggital and coronal planes in thin, thick or curved slices. CBCT is a valuable method for the diagnosis and preparation of endodontic care as well as for the assessment of apical periodontitis, resorption, root fractures, anatomy of the root canal, perforations and the nature of the alveolar bone around the teeth.
