Dental implants have turned out to be a prevalent prosthetic treatment option in recent years. However, a scarcity of public knowledge and the treatment’s expense function as roadblocks, limiting their application. Materials and Methods: The Department of Periodontics, Himachal Dental College, Sundernagar, Mandi, Himachal Pradesh performed a questionnaire-based survey to analyze participants’ knowledge, attitude, and acceptance of the worth of restoring missing teeth with dental implants. Analytical statistics version 7.0 of the Epi Info program was used. Results: A significant conclusion was that 55% of the population did not want any treatment, whereas 35% of those who took part in the survey selected fixed prosthesis to replace missing teeth. A considerable percentage of patients were cognizant of tooth replacement possibilities, but dental implants were not widely known. Conclusion: The biggest impediments to provide dental implant therapy appear to be high costs and a lack of information. Efforts to educate and raise knowledge of implants among the general public are required.
