Clinical and radiographic examinations were used to detect implant prostheses types (single-tooth<br>implant, implant-supported long or short span conventional fixed bridge, implant overdenture). The health<br>insurance covering dental implants was detected too. The data obtained including age, gender, systemic<br>disease, and tobacco smoking were documented in a patient examination form then statistically analyzed<br>using Chi-Square Test and U-Test.<br>Results: The most frequently tooth type replaced by dental implants was the molars (45.5%), followed by<br>premolars (40%), incisors (7.7%), and canines (6.8%); mandibular first molars were the most common<br>tooth type replaced by implants. Single-tooth implant was the most common prosthetic treatment modality<br>(85.2%), followed by implant-supported short span conventional fixed bridge (9.8%), implant overdenture<br>(2.8%), and implant-supported long span conventional fixed bridge (2.2%). The majority of implant<br>overdenture prostheses were seen in the age group ≥ 60 years. Implant-supported long span fixed bridge<br>prostheses were more in patients aged ≥ 50 years than in patients aged &lt; 50 years, while single-tooth<br>implant prostheses were more in patients aged &lt; 50 years than in patients aged ≥ 50 years. Of all teeth<br>types replaced by dental implants, molars were the most common type seen in implant-supported long span<br>fixed bridges and in single-tooth implants, whereas canines were the most common type seen in<br>overdentures. There was an insignificant difference in the median number of dental implants between males<br>and females.<br>Conclusion: Single-tooth implant is major. Health insurance policy doesn’t cover dental implants in Saudi<br>Arabia.</p> Rahaf Al-Safadi Thamer Al-Gannass Abdullah Al-Baraki Naif Bin Fnais Abdullah Abomelha Mohammad Al-Shuaibi Alfadhel Hamami Reem Al-Turki Hanin Al-Sugair Randa Mohammed Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Emerging Trends in Science and Technology https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2020-01-21 2020-01-21 6871 6878
