As years are passing attitude towards the dental treatment of each individual is changing not only the aesthetic is their prime concern but also, they demand for a prosthesis which is biomechanical in function and long lasting. Therefore, a prime concern should be given to patient's attitude and their expectations towards the treatment which will in all lead to patient's satisfaction. However, there are generally no accepted rules about how to estimate need, demand or utilization of prosthodontic services in most situations, since individual preferences play a very important role. The awareness of patient regarding dental treatment is of prime importance and should be looked upon. This study was done to assess the patients attitude and concern towards missing teeth and rehabilitating it with the artificial teeth.
