  ABSTRACT

Dentistry has recorded a remarkable progress in recent years, dental implantology has been emerged as its important component. The teeth can be replaced with substantial comfort and aesthetics using dental implants and it has been successful in the long run. To achieve optimal results the knowledge, attitude and reluctance towards implants at both dentist’s and patient’s level is of paramount importance. Therefore, this short communication was carried out to highlight the current knowledge, attitude and reluctance towards dental implants among general public and dental practitioners. The article projected two investigations that had been carried out with a lap of five years at different dental hospitals and allied institutes. The articles were questionnaire based studies including both male and female participants of all ages. We concluded that the general public were lacking awareness towards dental implants and their access was limited to this treatment due financial constraints. Dentists were the prime source of information providers. Additionally, dentists revealed highest level of knowledge regarding recent and conventional trends of dental implants. But despite of this, the attitude was lacking and confidence in placement of implant were deficient.

Keywords: Attitude, Dental implants, Dental practitioners, Implant perception
