Congenital hypodontia or trauma is a common cause of tooth loss in children. The absence of teeth causes loss of function and a lack of normal alveolar growth, as well as unpleasant aesthetics that impede the young child's psychosocial development.

They restore function, preserve alveolar bone, and provide excellent aesthetics, helping the child regain confidence and social acceptance. As a result, this review article sheds light on the potential use of dental implants in pediatric dental patients.
