Abstract

Background. Despite successful results of implant therapy, complications occasionally occur in challenging situations.Apart from academic courses for implantology, dental associations also offer training courses for general practitioners.We sought to assess dentists' attitude towards peri-implant diseases.

Methods. The subjects in thisquestionnaire-based cross-sectional study consisted of dentists participating in the annual congress of the Iranian Dental Association in 2013, whose knowledge and attitudes towards peri-implant diseases were assessed using a five-section questionnaire (implant therapy training, peri-implant soft tissue assessment, peri-implant diseases and treatment planning for peri-implant diseases). Data were analyzedwith SPSS 22, using descriptive and analytical methods.

Results. The results showed that due to extensive placement of implants and high prevalence of complications, academic and organized training courses are essential.

Conclusion. The results showed that due to extensive placement of implants and high prevalence of complications, academic and organized training courses are essential.
