Digital fluoroscopy has an unlimited potential in dentistry. The mysteries of mandibular motion can be unravelled and several facts unearthed. It is revealed from critical review of literature that fluoroscopy has proved its utility in evaluating the function and mobility of dentures and the position of bolus in two-dimensional views.Various applications are summarized as follows: temporo mandibular joint disorders; mandibular movement, which includes contact during mastication, freeway space and position of condyles in glenoid fossa (terminal hinge position). Here we present three case reports in which digital fluoroscopic potential was used as a valuable research tool, diagnostic aid and therapeutic monitor of the progress of treatment in dentistry.
