Abstract

Introduction: A dental implant is legitimately an endosseous implant or fixture inclusive of a surgical component that interfaces with the radical aspect of the jaw to extraordinarily, positively replicate a dental prosthesis such as multiple unit abutments inclusive pontic supporting prosthesis, single-unit prosthesis, partially and completely edentulous prosthesis, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Hence, the knowledge about dental implants evidently instills an exclusive rehabilitative instinct in the practitioner along with a co-existing competent and satisfactory attitude of the patient. Therefore, this study aims towards the assessment of the knowledge, attitude, and practice regarding dental implants among dental practitioners of Lucknow city.

Methodology: A cross-sectional study was done among 306 dental professionals of Lucknow city. A 21 variable, structured, self-administered, close-ended questionnaire in English was given to each dentist to evaluate their knowledge, attitude and practice regarding dental implants. The variables assessed were, 7 knowledge-based, 9attitude based and 5 based on practice few questions even had subparts. Few questions had multiple options. Descriptive statistics and chi-square test was applied keeping p < 0.05.

Result: Knowledge with education, age and years of practice was found to be significant. However, no significance was seen based on gender. The practice was highly significant to the years of practice and no significance was seen with questions on attitude.

Conclusion: Lack of knowledge is the reason for ignorance towards dental implants. Dentists should be more aware of implants in the current era.
