The Role of CBCT-Imaging Technique in Periodontology

Tsvetalina Gerova, Mariya Miteva

Abstract: The gold standard for periodontal examination is and continues to be the clinical periodontal evaluation (including probing pocket depth, bleeding on probing, mobility, gingival margin level, furcation involvement, etc.) and radiographic evaluation (OPG and intraoral radiographs). This conventional assessment contributes significantly to the diagnosis of periodontal diseases. Nowadays, compared to conventional X-ray methods, the use of CBCT technology has been increasingly sought after in the diagnosis of periodontal diseases. Although the data on CBCT and its application in periodontology is quite limited, some specific clinical situations are emerging in which CBCT is an indispensable complement to conventional assessment.
