Abstract: Background- Implant as a specialty of rehabilitative dentistry has become an integral part of treatment amongst the increasing number of dentists across the world. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the application of recent advances and conventional methodologies in implant treatment by the practitioners in and around Bangalore. Materials and Methods: A web-based questionnaire comprising of 14 questions were designed to know the most accepted implant systems, laser practice in treatment of peri-implantitis and various questions related to implant practice. Results: Most of the practitioners have been practicing implants from past one year placing an average of 0-20 implants in a year. Peri-implantitis is treated non-surgically by many of them and application of laser is considerably less. Conclusion: The study gives us the fair idea about the knowledge, exposure, treatment success or failure rate and also the extend of laser assistance.
