- The mandibular third molar impaction is a frequent case in dentistry. Various investigations are required prior to the removal of the mandibular third molar impaction, such as CBCT 3D radiography. This radiograph can provide optimum results for the investigation of mandibular third molar impaction. Case I: a 20-year-old woman came to Radiology Installation, RSGM FKG UNPAD with a referral letter for CBCT 3D photos. Anamnesis showed that patient had complaints of repeated pain in the area of left posterior teeth. Patient was pre-medicated and referred for radiographic images. Case II: a 33-year-old woman came to Radiology Installation, RSGM FKG UNPAD with a referral letter for CBCT 3D photograph. Anamnesis revealed patient with complaints of pain in the left posterior teeth. Patient was pre-medicated and referred for radiographic images. The radiodiagnosis of both cases above is Class II position B mesioangular. In cases of mandibular third molar impaction, investigation with CBCT 3D can provide optimal information. CBCT 3D can provide information about the shape, position and relationship of the impacted third molars to its surrounding anatomy in sagittal, coronal and axial view. This accurate information will make it easier for clinicians to perform adequate maintenance. CBCT 3D can provide an optimal features in the management of mandibular third molar impaction
