Computed Tomography (CT) scan is a noninvasive imaging modality that uses special X-ray equipment to produce multiple images of inside of the body and a computer to join them together in cross-sectional views of the area being studied. The technologic advances in CT made over the last 25 years have made it possible for CT to be an integral component of the dentist's diagnostic armamentarium. CT can be used to image the extent of pathologic conditions as well as help to unravel complex facial fractures. This paper reviews the applications of CT in dentistry.
