Abstract

The purpose of this survey was to assess the knowledge and opinion toward Biomimetic materials used in conservative dentistry and endodontics among the Endodontic postgraduate students, endodontist, intern and general practitioners of India. A questionnaire consisting of 24 questions was formulated and circulated through electronic media among endodontist, interns, endodontic postgraduate students & general practitioners of India. These questions were based on their knowledge and opinion regarding the biomimetic materials used in conservative dentistry & endodontic procedures. This survey revealed that more than three-fourth (96.1%) of the respondents had knowledge about biomimetic materials used in conservative dentistry & endodontics. Most of the respondents (81.2%) felt that this treatment strategy should be incorporated into dentistry. However, the results indicated that one-third (87.8%) of the respondents were using biomimetic materials in their regular practice. The results reflected that endodontists were well versed with the biomimetic materials and were optimistic of implementing it, a need for additional training was felt.
