The absence of teeth in youths can be due to congenital absence, traumas, caries and periodontitis. The loss of a tooth in growing patients can cause both aesthetic-functional and psychological problems, particularly if the teeth of the anterior region are involved. When there is the loss of a dental element in a teenager it is necessary to provide a quick suitable therapeutic solution, which will be different in comparison to an adult because of the changes related to the growth of the maxillary bones. The aim of this paper is the analysis of the several therapies which can be carried out on young patients with partial edentulism, paying particular attention to the conditions and the indications which allow an implant prosthesis restoration.
