Abstract
Background: Partial or complete absence of teeth is one of the most common reasons for which the patients
visit dental professionals. Mainly prosthodontic treatment procedures are broadly divided into two groups which
are removable prosthesis and the fixed prosthesis. Since the success rate of implants is higher therefore there is
increase in the procedures of implant placement in the clinical set ups. And the patients who underwent implant
treatment has accepted the implant supported denture as the replacement option of the natural missing teeth.
But still there is lack of evidence regarding the people awareness towards implants.
Aim: Evaluate awareness and knowledge of various treatment options for replacement of missing teeth in
patients at Dental College and Hospital
Methods and Materials: The study was conducted from January 2020 to March 2021 among patients who were
attending clinics for dental problems. The descriptive cross-sectional hospital study was carried out among 360
adult male and female patients who attended outpatient dental clinics. This study comprised patients who were
missing teeth, were over the age of 18, and were willing to participate. Patients who did not have missing teeth
or who refused to participate were not included in the study.The questionnaire was not designed for a specific
set of patients, but rather for all patients in general to examine their knowledge and awareness about tooth
replacement. All of the patients who took part in the trial were given a validated questionnaire.
Results: It was observed that patient were awared about removable partial denture and fixed partial denture but
the awareness was low towards the dental implants. The most common reason for such lack of awareness
towards implants was patients were having very less information about dental implants and high cost of
implants
Conclusion: It can be concluded from this study that patient were awared about removable partial denture and
fixed partial denture but the awareness was low towards the dental implants.
