From a data collection on 1000 patients over a 8 year period from 1997-2005 patients in a private sector in Oral Implantology Medical Centre (OIMC), Dubai-UAE they extrapolated that 42 per cent of UAE residents above 65 years of age are totally toothless and 30% per cent of people above age 30 suffer from partial tooth loss necessitating one or more implants. In another questionnaire given to the UAE public sector (by us) out of 1000 participant 50.7% preferred dental implants on any other treatment, 37.2% preferred fixed bridges and 12.1% preferred removable dentures.
