Abstract: Initially the profiles of patients who were undergoing therapy with dental implants was basically composed of elderly total edentulous patients. Currently, this profile is changing every day, being observed an increasing reduction in the amount of fully edentulous patient. Thus, the purpose of this study was to evaluate retrospectively the profile of patients treated with dental implants in the area of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery FOP/Unicamp for the period June 2001 to July 2008. The results show that the age group that underwent further treatment were adults between 40-49 years (29.63%), while only 14, 11% of subjects had 60 years or more. The most common type of rehabilitation were unit (50.23%), followed by multiple rehabilitations (34.50%) and total (15.27%). In conclusion we can say that in this study young adults (30-49 years) were the most prevalent group that sought rehabilitation with implants, mostly for unitary replacement. © 2011 Sociedade Portuguesa de Estomatologia e Medicina Dentária.
