Abstract

This study aims to determine the knowledge and attitude of dental students toward immediate implant placement as a treatment modality for replacing missing teeth. A cross-sectional study was carried out on 300 dental surgeons (Male=150; Female=150) who participated in a study with age ranges from 20 to 55 to know the knowledge and awareness among dentists toward immediate implant placement as a treatment modality in replacing missing teeth. Written informed consent was obtained from the participants after explaining the study's purpose. The sampling method included in the study is a simple random sampling method. A self-administered structured questionnaire was developed, and the data was collected. Both descriptive and analytical statistical measurements were done. The majority of participants, 189 (63%), were aware of dental implant treatment as an alternative for missing teeth. 65% agreed that dental implant lasts longer than other dental replacement alone. When asked whether there is any possibility of implant failure, 73% of participants agreed to this information. When asked regarding think insurance coverage is needed in our country for dental implant treatment, 89% agreed to this. The present study revealed adequate knowledge concerning replacement methods for lost teeth and dental implants as an option for teeth replacement among dentists. This facilitates the need for strengthening education among dentists to reinforce their knowledge and awareness about implants in their undergraduate curriculum.
