Background: Awareness about dental implants is increasing among patients, and patient satisfaction after treatment with implants is prone to be affected by the disparity between extremely high expectations and the final outcomes. Therefore, the aim of the study was to investigate the factors, which could affect patient satisfaction and the single implant treatment plans supported by dentists. Materials and Methods: All patients who received single implant treatments between June 2019 and December 2019, from all the dental clinics in Dhanbad, Jharkhand, India, were included. According to the Oral Health Impact Profile-14 questionnaire (Hongxing L, List T, Nilsson IM, Johansson A, Astrøm AN. Validity and reliability of OIDP and OHIP-14: A survey of Chinese high school students. BMC Oral Health 2014;14:158; Heng D, Zou N, Liu H, Huang H, Yang G, Chen L, et al. Satisfaction analysis of patients with single implant treatments based on a questionnaire survey. Patient Prefer Adherence 2019;13:695-704), the Oral Implant Impact Profile Questionnaire was reorganized to contain 15 questions (Q1–Q15) related to satisfaction with the dental implant. Results: The level of patient satisfaction with implant treatment scored positive (mean scores >4). The mean satisfaction score ranged from 4.43 to 4.91 in the 15 items, suggesting that single implant treatments for missing teeth met the expectations of patients. Conclusion: It is essential to raise the general awareness of oral implants and to optimize the dental implant therapeutic processes as much as possible, both of which are conducive to enhance patient satisfaction in dental clinics.
