Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is a major challenge faced in dental practice. Imaging plays a critical role in diagnosis and treatment planning of this condition. Conventional radiographs are commonly acquired as baseline imaging, but due to limitations such as being a two-dimensional modality and superimposition of adjacent anatomy, certain radiographic features may not be visualized like on a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) possibly resulting in either missing the lesion on radiographs or misinterpreting the severity of the disease. This case shows that CBCT could be a good initial choice along with clinical examination to avoid delay in proper diagnosis and management.
