Keywords:CBCT, Clinical applications, Guideline recommendation
It is essential to have fundamental knowledge in CBCT to appropriately apply in endodontics in order to maximize patient benefits with minimal risks of exposure. American Association of Endodontists (AAE) and European Society of Endodontology (ESE) have provided the guideline recommendation in several stages of examination and treatments as follows; diagnosis, primary treatment, non-surgical retreatment, surgical retreatment and special conditions. Moreover, the CBCT could be aided in the follow ups after treatment in some certain cases.
