Can really Cone-Beam Computed Tomography systems (CBCT) be used in daily dental practice? Every day we face new challenges in our daily dental practice ranging from simple procedures that had gone wrong to complex cases. The Cone-Beam Computed Tomography System (CBCT) can help to overcome these challenges by helping with the diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of certain conditions. Dental CBCT systems are increasingly used by dental professionals for various clinical applications including dental implant planning, visualization of abnormal teeth, evaluation of the jaws and face, cleft palate assessment, diagnosis of dental caries (cavities), endodontic (root canal) diagnosis, and diagnosis of dental trauma. Myths that surround the uses of CBCT and the difference between 2D imaging and 3D imaging, CBCT in diagnosis, periodontics, surgery, endodontics. Guided dental practice, in endodontics and surgery, advantages and limitations of CBCT. Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These data are used to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (“ENT”).
