Abstract

Dental implant technology has undergone dramatic changes in the past few years and has become a significant treatment planning option in restorative dentistry. Dental implants have become an accepted form of permanent tooth replacement. Diagnostic imaging can play an important role in evaluating patients with such implants. Useful imaging studies include panoramic radiography, computed tomography, and computer-reformatted cross-sectional, panoramic, and three-dimensional imaging. Advanced imaging studies can be used to determine the suitability of implant placement, appropriate sites for implant placement, the size of the implant that can be placed, and the need for pre-implantation ridge surgery. This review article summarizes various radiological diagnostic imaging of implants.
