Background: The present study aimed to evaluate the demographics of the patients who applied for implant treatment to Inonu University, Faculty of Dentistry, Department of Prosthodontics between 2010 and 2016.

Methods: In implant patients, implant locations, type of restoration after implant treatment, age and gender of the patients were determined using Metasoft software. FDI numbering system was used for implant locations. Descriptive statistics were analyzed using chi-square test (P<0.05).

Results: It was found that a total of 1000 patients (410 males, 590 females) received 2955 implants during the specified period. 1052 implants were received by individuals between the ages of 41 and 50. There were statistical differences between age groups based on the implants in tooth numbers 14, 27, 34, 36, 37, 44, 46, and 47 (P<0.05) that were frequently implemented in 41-50 year old patients. It was found that the most frequent restoration type was single crowns and the first molar tooth received the highest number of implants. It was found that the regions that received the highest number of implants were the mandible and posterior regions.

Conclusions: It was determined that the number of implants in the mandible increased with the age of the patients. It was observed that the implant-supported prosthetic treatment options varied based on the state of the jaws, the localization and width of the edentation, the income levels of the patients and their gender.

Keywords: Implant location, Age, Gender, Implant supported prosthesis
