Issues associated with missing teeth can be found in almost all age groups. For edentulous patients, osseointegration is a highly efficient treatment. However, certain biochemical challenges are presented when osseointegrated implants are taken into consideration due to the periodontal ligament. Therefore, the current study focuses on clinical concerns that can occur with the use of dental implants and examines different trends of implant restoration and treatment of partial edentulous patients. Data were collected from ten research articles and analyzed by means of a qualitative secondary approach. The findings of the current study indicate that restoration and preservation of natural teeth are significant in the development of dental practices. Moreover, the determinant of endodontic treatment is considered to be a key factor in the retention and reconstruction of tooth functioning that is influenced by necrosis of dental pulp. We conclude that the osseointegration method is significant and highly effective for treating edentulous patients.
