In recent years, Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has revolutionized diagnostic dentistry, particularly the field of restorative dentistry and endodontics. This technology overcomes the limitations of conventional radiography and provides high-quality, three-dimensional visualization of all structures (tooth and anatomical structures) at low radiation doses.
It is important to understand the functioning and characteristics of CBCT, its indications and use in different clinical situations, particularly in the management of endodontic problems.
The literature has amply confirmed the superiority of CBCT over both conventional radiography and conventional CT scan. Previewing apical lesions, vertical fractures, dental resorptions, perforations or anatomical abnormalities may vary a treatment plan, allowing the clinician to know the outcome of any situation. In addition, a CBCT scan can be used to give the patient an accurate explanation of the situation.
