The article focuses on role of radiographic methods for accuracy in selection and placement of dental implants. It discusses the shortcomings of dental radiographs and methods of compensation for their distortion. It also mentions the use of radiologic computer systems in the modality of dental implants. It cites paralleling periapical radiograph method as the most accurate in posterior implant modalities. In the determination of measurements for the placement of mandibular anterior endosseous dental implants, a panoramic radiograph using the Panorex or the Panelipse is cited as the method of choice. An overview of the paralleling and measuring device to aid in measurement of the anterior mandible is offered. Role of tomographic methods in future dental implantology is discussed.
