Dental implantation is an integral part of modern dentistry in the issue of complete rehabilitation and preservation of the quality of life of dental patients of all ages. Due to the active development of dental implantation among adults and the expansion of indications for its application in the age aspect, the question of the possibility of its use for prosthetic treatment of children and adolescents is discussed, but the main reservations about the establishment of dental implants in growing patients are the possible dental implants impact on jaws growth and development.
