Abstract –Injury to the primary dentition is one of the common problems of childhood. Disturbances during crown development of the permanent teeth result in morphologic alterations. This case report highlights the role of 3-D imaging when conventional dental radiographs are not enough to answer our clinical questions regarding future eruptive disturbances. 3-D imaging can many times give us a definitive diagnosis and improve the treatment planning after early injuries in the deciduous dentition. The current status of multislice computed tomography (CT) and cone beam CT (CBCT) as diagnostic tools in pediatric dental population is also discussed briefly.
