The purpose of this study was to examine the types of implant, the type of bone graft, periodontal status and the distribution of implant among patients in a region. The subjects in this study were 299 patients who received implant treatment Busan area. The number of their implants was 871 in total. The findings of the study were as follows: As for the type of implant, home-made implants accounted for 83.6 percent, and imported ones represented 16.4 percent. Regarding bone graft, The presence or absence of disease made a significant difference to that($x^2$=14.66, p<.01). As to periodontal status by gender, age and disease, the periodontal state was better among those who were female(y=-2.73, p<.01), who were younger(F=14.20, p<.001) and who had no disease(t=-4.67, p<.001). The intergroup gaps were statistically significant. Concerning the distribution of implant, The distribution of implant was statistically significantly different($x^2$=33.14, p<.01). Age made a statistically significant difference to that($x^2$=74.09, p<.001). As to links between periodontal status and the number of implant, The intergroup gaps were statistically significant($x^2$=38.28, p<.01).
