Aim: A questionnaire study on the impression techniques used for implant dentistry by different practitioners. Objective: To do a questionnaire study on impression techniques to evaluate the technique that is commonly used and its advantages. Materials and methods: A standard questionnaire is distributed to dental practitioners and students of different colleges. Around a 100 doctors are chosen by random sampling and given to those who are willing to participate. This research focuses on impression materials and the various impression techniques that can be used in implant restorations with note on recent advances in implant impressions. Results: 88.71% of the dentists feel that special components are required for an implant impression and majority believe that the level at which the impression should be taken depends on many factors. Majority believe that an FPD like impression is sufficient for a cement retained FPD and also the fact that implant level impression can be taken for multiple angulated implants. Majority of the dentists support the fact that multiple implants should be splinted before an impression and the most accepted material for an implant is addition silicone.
