  • Abstract

    Radiographs are valuable diagnostic tools, for clinical examination in the diagnosis of dental diseases. Two-dimensional (2-D) periapical radiographs and panoramic radiographs are routinely used in dental practice. However, there are certain limitations of 2-D radiographs, which can be overcome by three-dimensional, imaging techniques such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and CT. The purpose of this article is to analyze the recent advances made in digital dental imaging (CT and CBCT). Correct use of newer radiographic techniques can help early detection and appropriate and timely treatment for various dental and oral pathologies. Recent advances in imaging technologies have revolutionized dental diagnostics and treatment planning. Correct use of appropriate imaging technology and their correct interpretation, following the as low as reasonably achievable principles and cost-effectiveness, newer radiographic techniques can help to detect pathologies in very early stages, which ultimately help to reduce morbidity and mortality and improve the quality of life of the patients.
