Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is becoming increasingly available since its introduction in the late 1990s. The technique provides low-dose high-resolution images of the teeth and jaws. This article discusses the clinical applications of CBCT in children. CBCT is most commonly used in children for localization of teeth and the assessment of root resorption. CBCT can offer an advantage over conventional imaging in selected cases. The decision to image using CBCT should be judged for each individual, and should impact on management and outcome.
CPD/Clinical Relevance: CBCT affords low-dose, high-resolution imaging that can be used in appropriately selected paediatric cases.
