For several years, intra-oral images (i.e. periapical images) have been the state-of-the-art imaging method assisting on the diagnosis of periodontal diseases. As these are two-dimensional images, some areas might not be possible to evaluate clearly, due to overlapping of anatomical structures or areas where dense cortical bone masks small areas of mineral loss in the cancellous bone. In the present, imaging guidelines focusing into the use CBCT imaging to overcome problems such as the superimposition of anatomical structures. Implementing CBCT may benefit the field of Periodontology as an additional diagnostic method to be used in cases when the clinical examination, patient symptoms, and traditional two-dimensional imaging techniques do not give clear answer. However, the clinical documentation of the diagnostic accuracy of CBCT within Periodontology  is yet to be disclosed. Further, the society gain from implementing CBCT in the decision-making and therapeutic process in relation to periodontal diagnosis and treatment planning is far from be defined. In other words, we need to clarify how the use of CBCT will affect treatment choice and (eventually) its outcome. In this lecture, we will discuss the state-of-art of using CBCT within Periodontology, as well as the technical aspects of CBCT with could interfere with its proper use in the clinic.
