i would think so. If you are not missing any teeth why would you need a dental implant ? That said, perhaps you are referring to their use in supporting and retaining a removable denture. Still, teeth are missing. Orofacial implants can be used in the reconstruction of the face : i.e. An ear prosthesis is an example. These are not dental implants although they are the same implant, but not used dentally.
