Panoramic radiography is widely used in dentistry and was considered a significant breakthrough as both jaws, together with the dentition, are imaged with a quick and straightforward procedure. It has a wide variety of uses requiring broad coverage of the jaws, including traumatic fractures, impacted third molars, dental problems or bony diseases, evaluation of tooth development, temporomandibular joint pain and other anomalies. Distinct soft tissue, bony landmarks from midfacial to the chin region as well as the teeth can be seen in the radiograph. Interpreting panoramic radiographs may be tricky especially for beginners, and this lecture will discuss the steps needed to read the wide sized black, white and grey images. CBCT, another breakthrough in dentistry, has been around for 20 years. It can be used to view the complex anatomy of the head and neck region in three-dimensional view. The compact size and integration with panoramic radiograph machine make it available in many dental offices. This lecture will discuss the basic principles of CBCT and its applications in the dental field, including implant dentistry, impacted teeth, evaluation of bony lesions in the jaw, and endodontics.
