Abstract

The use of osseointegrated implants has been increasingly widespread in the adult population, but there is a certain lack in the literature on the application of this technique in children. The bone growth and development factor must be well analyzed, and the pediatric dentist must be able to suggest the use of this treatment option for oral rehabilitation, if necessary. The replacement of teeth by implants is usually restricted to patients with completed craniofacial growth. This article discusses the use of dental implants in normally growing patients, the effect of maxillary and mandibular skeletal and dental growth on the stability of those implants, bone growth and craniofacial development, the prevalence of associated psychological stress should be taken into account, in addition to the status of existing dentition and dental compliance of a pediatricpatient.
