    Background: Nerve injury is one of the most serious complications in implant dentistry. This nerve injury can occur during local anesthesia, implant osteotomy, or implant placement. This study discusses the cause of nerve injury and its diagnosis, prevention, and management during implant treatment. Aim: The objective of the study was to determine the incidence and management of nerve injuries during implant treatment. Materials and Methods: A sample size of 100 dental practitioners who perform implant procedure was considered as participants. A questionnaire comprising 16 questions on the incidence and management of nerve injuries and the recordings were made individually by the investigator and results were analyzed. Results: The results inferred from the study show that nerve injuries during implant treatment have been experienced by 25% of dental practitioners and the patients have experienced complications post-treatment. 42% of the participants feel that they do not have enough knowledge about the incidence and management of nerve injuries. Conclusion: Nerve injuries during implant treatment are not rare and there is not enough awareness among practitioners, so awareness programs and workshops must be conducted in this field.
