    Exploring the depths of 2D and 3D imaging in dentistry

    Dentistry has undergone a transformative journey with the integration of cutting-edge imaging technologies, particularly in the realms of 2D and 3D imaging. The presentation aims to point out the progression of conventional radiography and its role in identifying dental pathologies, the strengths, and limitations of 2D imaging, as well as the need for third dimension, unveiling the role of 3D imaging in dentistry, particularly the CBCT. Undeniable advantages of 3D imaging, including enhanced visualization of anatomical structures, accurate measurement capabilities, and the ability to simulate surgical procedures in a virtual environment come with an increase in the radiation dose and a responsibility of the dentist to balance the benefits and the risks. This presentation aims to showcase the symbiotic relationship between 2D and 3D imaging in modern, comprehensive dentistry, with the help of a few clinical cases.The integration of imaging technologies facilitates a holistic approach, allowing practitioners to diagnose complex cases with greater confidence and devise personalized treatment plans tailored to individual patient needs.
