    Introduction: With increasing awareness about dental health, choosing dental prosthesis for replacement of missing teeth is but common even among the rural population. Dental implants among dental prosthesis are presently on the rise. Implant supported prosthesis is a lot comfortable and hence successful in patients requiring oral rehabilitation. The ongoing research in material science has made it even more possible for dental implants at a very affordable cost as well. Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the dental practitioner point of view of the patient-related risk factor for peri-implantitis in patients receiving endosseous dental implants. Background: Failure of dental implants is a major concern in spite of its large success rates. Chronic alcoholism, smoking, poor oral hygiene, and other systemic disturbances interfere with the cellular and molecular mechanisms potentially responsible for bone growth and osseointegration around the prosthesis. Materials and Methods: A total of 200 general d practitioners in private practice and those attached to colleges. The information with regard to the anatomical site, age, gender, and occupation were assessed. The data were extracted. Result: A total of 200 general dental surgeons participated in the study. The results of the study were as follows: 182 participants felt age was an important criterion and 180 dentists felt that gender does play a role in the longevity of implants. About the association with anatomical locations, maxilla was acceptable for 25 only, whereas 175 were comfortable with the mandible, 193 accepted that the systemic health issues can jeopardize the prognosis, 181 dentists agreed that diabetes can affect the prognosis. Similarly, 163 dentists felt that blood pressure can affect the prognosis. Only 156 dentists agreed that smoking could result in poor prognosis. As for alcoholism, 138 dentists opined to affect prognosis, whereas 52 dentists did not agree. That poor oral hygiene affect prognosis was agreed by 172 dentists, still, 28 others disagreed, and parafunctional habits affect implant prognosis was agreed by 123, while 77 others differed. Conclusion: Considering all the patient-related risk factors can affect the prognosis of dental implants, more awareness of risk factors. Moreover, maintenance of implants is necessary among practitioners.
