Purpose: The aim of this retrospective report was to evaluate the treatment outcome of oral rehabilitation with dental implants in oligodontia patients. Materials and Methods: Thirteen oligodontia patients treated with dental implants were examined clinically and radiographically (follow-up 3 2 years, range 1 to 8 years). In addition, patient-mediated concerns of satisfaction, treatment experience, and level of impairment of oral functions were assessed with questionnaires. Results: In general, all patients were satisfied with the implant treatment and experienced the treatment as nonaggravating. There was significant functional improvement, with an implant survival rate of 86% and 96% for the maxilla and mandible, respectively. Conclusion: Dental implants can play an important role in the oral rehabilitation of patients with oligodontia. Patients were generally satisfied with the overall treatment experience and reported significant functional improvement. Implant survival rate was comparable with previous reports.
