Introduction: Dental implants have been the proven and promising treatment option for replacing missing oral and facial structures for the past few decades. Traditional approach for rehabilitating the growing jaws of the individuals with the implant supported prosthesis is not in routine practice, so whether the rehabilitation in growing jaws will be a predictable and reliable treatment option

Summary: The success of any treatment based on the fulfillment of functional and esthetic demands for that particular clinical condition. The implant is the preferred treatment modality for the growth completed jaw due to its reliability in the outcome, but still the outcome is ambiguous in growing jaws due to susceptible complications because the position of the implant will not be in pace with changes of the growing bone, so it will affect the position of the implant and in turn impact the success of the prosthetic procedures. Clinician should have an insight about the precautions and protocol to be implemented in treating such patients.

Conclusion: Dental implants will be a suitable treatment modality in growing jaws if the specialist provides the treatment with proper understanding of the growth pattern of the individual and with maintenance protocol.
