X-rays are an integral part of any dental practice. They help your dentist see what is beneath the visible surface, which is helpful in cavity detection and prevention, especially. But during the preparation phase of more complex oral procedures, a traditional X-ray may not be sufficient.

The answer to that depends on a few factors, including how many teeth you are missing, where they are located, and what your implants are made of.
