Success in implant placement largely depends on presurgical evaluation and treatment planning. Many imaging modalities have been reported to be useful including periapical, panoramic, lateral cephalometric and tomographic radiography, computed tomography, interactive computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. The development of precise presurgical imaging techniques and surgical templates allow the dentist to place these implants with relative ease & predictability. This paper reviews various imaging techniques, their applications and limitations in dental implant treatment planning.
