Background: Implantology is an emerging field of science, although there are not many subjects who opt for this treatment modality. Replacement of missing or lost teeth with dental prostheses supported by oral implants has been accepted and received positive evaluations from patients who have undergone implant treatment. Today, implant-supported restorations can be considered the treatment of choice from the perspective of occlusal support, preservation of adjacent teeth, and avoidance of a removable partial denture. Currently, dental implants are widely accepted as a prosthetic treatment of completely or partially edentulous patients. This led to widespread acceptance and popularity of dental implants within the dental professional community. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate knowledge, attitude, and awareness of dental implants in residents of Uttarakhand. Materials and Methods: A total population of 500 subjects were randomly selected and evaluated based on filled questionnaire responses. Results: A low level of knowledge was observed on analyzing the filled responses among the studied population. Conclusion: General public should be made aware on dental implants as treatment modality along with the focus on increasing the cost feasibility.
