Abstract

Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the knowledge and awareness towards dental implants in young individuals of Ghaziabad district.
Materials and Methods: A cross sectional survey of 150 individuals was done using a structured validated questionnaire among young individuals of 21-30 years.
Results: The results of this study indicated that 12% of the subjects knew about dental implants. The subjects friends and relatives were main source of information about dental implants for 8.7% and dentists were the secondary source for 2.7%. 100% of the subjects wanted to know more about implants. Lack of knowledge was the major factor in preventing patients from choosing dental implants and high cost was also found to be a major deterrent factor.
Conclusion: This study showed that young individuals in Ghaziabad have limited awareness about dental implants. Awareness among youngsters is required that can help in eliminating any negative image that may have been caused due to lack of adequate information. It is also concluded that various efforts should be made to lower the cost of implants so that they can be made affordable to all who are in need of it.
