Is it true that CT scan is necessary before a dental implant or bridge?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not always

But with that said a ct scan offers much more 3d info than a 2d peri apical or panoramic.
Depending on the extent and location and number of implants being placed, a ct scan can offer tremendous benefit. Hope this helps.

In brief: Not true

Scans are necessary when there are problems with anatomy.
That is if there is not enough bone below your sinus or above your mandibular nerve. Also if the bone is too thin to properly accommodate an implant if you see a very experienced implant doctor they will not use a scan on every patient.
