Abstract

Introduction: This study has for purpose to report a comprehensive description of dental implant system selection criteria among a sample of dentists practicing implantology in Tunisia.

Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was developed and sent to 120 dentists independently of their specialty. Responses were compiled and analyzed using the SPSS 21 Software.

Results: Among 120 questionnaires distributed, we had 94 responses. Practically, half of the sample was composed of general practitioners. Clinical track record was the most important factor (86%), in addition to brand image (61, 16%). The compatibility with CAD/CAM system used in laboratory and technician’s recommendations were the least important.

Conclusion: according to the results of this survey, most respondents agreed on the importance of clinical track record, the variety of implant dimensions and prosthetic accessories proposed, and the type of implant/abutment connection in addition to scientific evidence available on implant systems.
