INTRODUCTION
Dental implants refers tometal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the

People are aware about few of aspects related to dental implanted but it is really necessary to
make them properly aware regarding specific tooth implantation process including the procedure

and it benefits2. It is very important to remove wrong perception of citizens regarding dental
implantation which impacts on the process and it results as well.
The present investigation will focus on level of awareness of people and their actual
thoughts regarding the concept of dental implantation. It involves that fact behind avoiding

life. Moreover, it is observed that few of individuals avoid this dental treatment due to having
fear of extreme pain.
1.2 Structure of the academic paper
The given academic paper includes number of main chapter including introduction,
theoretical background, data collection & analysis and conclusion. Initially, introduction focus
on introduction of dental implants including reference of actuality and structure of report with
the help of discussing about the main concept. It involves about awareness of people regarding
dental implantations as well as acceptance of the same in present scenario which is required to
promote in order to improve quality of lives. Meanwhile, theoretical background consist detailed
