Objectives: This review has been done with the objective of evaluating different imaging modalities available to the dental practitioners in treatment planning for implant placement. Material and Methods: A systematic online search was conducted with relevant keywords. The inclusion criteria was all articles that discussed 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional imaging modalities that have been introduced for pre, peri & post operative implant surgery. Textbooks relevant to the topic were also hand searched. The data obtained has been included in the discussion and summarized as per the available literature. Conclusion: The evolution of implant imaging modalities from simple 2-dimensional to complex 3-dimensional techniques have improved the sensitivity & specificity with which a favorable implant site may be located preoperatively, its location (in all the three planes) more objectively assessed peri operatively and the prognosis of the implants followed more accurately. Yet the more complex modalities are more technique sensitive & their high radiation dosage require more rigorous justification for routine usage.
