Is 3D Cone Beam now the standard of care for implants?

I have an ongoing argument with a younger dentist about standard of care. I told him I have been doing dental implants for many years and PA X and pano radiographs have been fine. He says 3D Cone Beam is needed. I fully understand the value of his view. However, the vast majority of implants placed today and 100% of them placed 10 years ago were done with 2D. I asked a respected authority in the dental field, this question, and he said, I am paraphrasing…“3D conebeam is not the standard of care yet, but in a litigious world it pays to get one.” I would like to know what the opinion of this group is on this question. Thanks Mark
