The most common type of x-ray taken prior to a dental implants is the Panoramic x-ray. The Panoramic x-ray is a digital x-ray that allows dentists to place dental implants correctly. The x-ray acts more like a guide since dentists can't see directly into the gums with the naked eye (obviously).
The Panoramic x-ray is precise and accurate in all dental implant procedures.

As short as this response is, it gives a general idea of what x-ray is used for dental implants. Hope it helps!

There are different types of x-rays that can be used for implants.
CBCT (cone beam radiographs) now allow 3D imaging of the jaw and actually allows us to virtually place the implant before the actual procedure. Before cone beam x-rays were popular, a lot of implants were placed with simple PA radiographs and/or panorex. We can use items to help us standardize the sizing of the film compared to the real life situation.
