Clinical surveys with self-questionnaire were conducted on 360 patients and information and demographic data related to patients were collected from several different hospitals in Iraq within a period of 1 year, that is from March 11, 2020 to December 5, 2020. This study was done by collecting patient information and discovering the study complications associated with dental implants in patients with bruxism. The study was conducted in several different hospitals to evaluate the complications, in addition to knowing the health
related–quality of life (HRQoL) for patients. The Oral Health Impact Tool 14 (OHIP-14) was used to analyze the HRQoL with bruxism and the results obtained indicate a statistically significant presence in the HRQoL of patients surveyed with (P < 0.001). The implant number for the studied patients was 580 and was more distributed in the age group from 25 to 29 years for 240 patients (41.3%) and health outcomes related to the survival rate of patients study.
