Background: Implant therapy, in India, has flourished in recent years and is being practiced widely by many dental practitioners today. Along with the increasing number of implants being placed today, there has also been a constant rise in the number of complications associated with it. Objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate the knowledge and awareness of implant placement and management of peri-implant diseases among dental professionals. Materials and Methods: A total of 568 dental practitioners were approached with a questionnaire for collecting data related to demographic details, experience, and knowledge about implant placement and management of its complications. Of these, only 262 were included as part of the statistical analysis. This data collected were compiled and analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results: Results showed that most dentists who participated in this study have adequate knowledge about etiological factors and its management. Those who acquired implant skills through sources that are not in accordance with accepted standards had unsatisfactory knowledge and practice behavior. Conclusion: The awareness and knowledge regarding the implant procedures and their complications such as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis were higher in self-trained dentists and by dentists who are practicing for >10 years and calls for updating of knowledge.
