Implant Placement in Growing Adolescents : a Literature Review
Shin, Hyun-Seung;
  PDF(new window)
Although there are a number of studies on the treatment planning and the prognosis of dental implants, limited studies provide the information on the implant placement on growing adolescents. The aim of this review is to discuss the use of dental implants in growing patients and the impact of skeletal and dentoalveolar growth on the long-term stability of implants. The general information regarding skeletal growth of maxilla and mandible would be briefly reviewed and the general treatment options would be discussed.
