Provision of information on dental implant treatment: Patients’ thoughts and experiences INTRODUCTIONAn increase in public and patients awareness of dental implant treatment as an alternative to traditional methods of replacing missing teeth has been observed in multiple studies (Pommer et al., ; Wang, Gao, & Lo, ; Yao et al., ). It has however been highlighted that this awareness is often accompanied by insufficient patient understanding of implant treatment outcomes (Al‐Dwairi, El Masoud, Al‐Afifi, Borzabadi‐Farahani, & Lynch, ; Kashbour, Rousseau, Ellis, & Thomason, 2015; Yao et al., ), and patients’ expectations of implant treatment outcomes is unrealistically “high” (Abrahamsson, Wennström, Berglundh, & Abrahamsson, ; Allen, McMillan, & Walshaw, ; Grey, Harcourt, O'Sullivan, Buchanan, & Kilpatrick, ; Yao, Tang, Gao, McGrath, & Mattheos, ; Yao et al., ).

Abstract

INTRODUCTIONAn increase in public and patients awareness of dental implant treatment as an alternative to traditional methods of replacing missing teeth has been observed in multiple studies (Pommer et al., ; Wang, Gao, & Lo, ; Yao et al., ). It has however been highlighted that this awareness is often accompanied by insufficient patient understanding of implant treatment outcomes (Al‐Dwairi, El Masoud, Al‐Afifi, Borzabadi‐Farahani, & Lynch, ; Kashbour, Rousseau, Ellis, & Thomason, 2015; Yao et al., ), and patients’ expectations of implant treatment outcomes is unrealistically “high” (Abrahamsson, Wennström, Berglundh, & Abrahamsson, ; Allen, McMillan, & Walshaw, ; Grey, Harcourt, O'Sullivan, Buchanan, & Kilpatrick, ; Yao, Tang, Gao, McGrath, & Mattheos, ; Yao et al., ). In addition, there is a noted increase in the level of patient complaints to the General Dental Council in the UK regarding dissatisfaction with implant treatment outcomes (Royal College of Surgeon (RCS) Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS), ).Multiple sources of implant information have been previously reported. For example, in the UK, Austria and Jordan, patient information regarding dental implant treatment is often obtained from family and friends, with reference to dentists only when patients need additional information (Al‐Dwairi et al., ). In contrast, dentists seem to be the
