    Introduction: The aim of this study is to analyze about the knowledge about cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) on periodontal diagnosis among orthodontists and periodontists. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was prepared with a set of 10 questions about CBCT to 50 orthodontists and 50 periodontists in Chennai population through an online survey. Results: The responses varied among both the groups in each question. Discussion: Both imaging modalities had the same over- and under-estimation rates for periodontal bone defects. Periodontal bone level measurements are reproducible on film-based conventional radiography, while examiners’ agreement is not enhanced using intraoral digital imaging systems. Nevertheless, the latter reduce radiation exposure and offer potentials for image analysis, optimization, and quantification, such as contrast enhancement, periodontal filtering, and digital subtraction. Conclusion: Though the knowledge among the orthodontists and periodontists with the use of CBCT for diagnosis is equally distributed, the necessity of using advanced technology for better management and smooth handling of the patients is to be incorporated among all dentists for accurate diagnosis.
