Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) offers three-dimensional (3D) imaging with broad indications for periodontal diagnosis and treatment, as well as all phases of dental implant planning, placement, and follow-up. Yet for all of its advantages, cone-beam imaging should not be used indiscriminately; rather, it should be considered as a powerful adjunct to traditional examinations, diagnosis, treatment planning, and delivery. For insights into this imaging modality, we asked American Academy of Periodontology President Bryan J. Frantz, DMD, MS, to share his perspective on the use of CBCT in periodontal therapy and implant dentistry.
