AIM: The aim of this survey was to assess the preferences of the partially edentulous patients towards fixed partial denture (FPD) or implant, based on their age and attitude. MATERIAL AND METHODOLOGY USED: The survey was conducted in our private dental college in Chennai, Tamilnadu among 90 partially edentulous patients, who were divided into three age groups (group 1-50 years of age) and given a questionnaire comprising of a total of 15 questions asking assessing their preferences towards FPD or implant. The questionnaire was manually distributed; data was collected and statistically analyzed. RESULTS: The results of this survey concluded that among the 90 patients chosen about 43.3 % of them have opted for fixed partial denture, 35.6 % opted for implant prosthesis and around 21.1 % of them werent interested in replacement. CONCLUSION: This study concludes that the age and attitude do influence the partially edentulous patients in selecting between FPD or implant. This survey also shows us that as age increases people get ignorant towards replacing their teeth no matter what the reason may be. And if they are willing to replace it they very much prefer fixed partial dentures (FPD) over implants.
