BACKGROUND: Long-term survival of the implant is expected for the evaluation of success rate. In spite of the high success and survival rates , failures do arise and the certain factors are responsible for this. They include health age, gender, status habits, quality of bone, oral hygiene maintenance etc. Since , all the above can be involved, bone density influences the survival of implants to a greater extent.
AIM:The aim of this study is to assess the association between gender and bone density in implant received patients.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included patients who had reported to saveetha dental college during June 2019- March 2020. Case records of 86, 000 patients were reviewed and 400 subjects were recruited for the studybased on the inclusion criteria such as age , gender, bone density and implant treatment received. Data was entered in excel sheet and later exported to SPSS software for statistical analysis. Both descriptive (percentage)and inferential
statistics(Chi square test ) were done.
RESULTS: D2 was the most common type of bone density noticed among implant patients(64.8%).No statistical significance for association of bone density and site of implant placement.(p>0.05) . Statistical significance were observed between bone density and gender( p<0.05).
CONCLUSION: Thus to conclude bone density was higher for the younger age group. There was an association between gender and bone density.
