Abstract
Recent years have witnessed a consistent trend toward the introduction of patient assessment of different treatment outcomes in dental practice. Patient satisfaction with dental implants was considered among these treatment modalities. Few literature reviews have been published on this topic. This article critically analyzes the concerned topics related to patient satisfaction with dental implant. A MEDLINE search was completed from 1983 to 2004, along with a manual search, to locate related articles on the topic. Dental implants provided promising and predictable results regarding patient satisfaction and various aspects of life assessment. (Implant Dent 2005;14:399–408)
