Introduction: It was discovered that restorations placed by more experienced doctors had a longer lifespan . Aside from all existing evidence on composite restoration survival, the majority of investigations have been conducted in a controlled environment. The aim of the present study is to assess reasons and rate of failure in patients reporting with dislodged anterior restoration Materials and methods: The present study was conducted in the Department of Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics. We assessed the patient’s records and analysed data of 2000 patients. Patients who have undergone anterior restoration were initially screened. Among these the patients with complaints of dislodged restoration were analysed. The data is tabulated using excel and analysed with SPSS. Results: In the present study, the majority of the patients reported that restoration survival rate was less than 5 years (58%), (p<0.05). Patients with moderate and low caries risk had complaints of dislodged restoration which is 34% and 32% respectively. Most common reason for failure of restoration is fracture (50%) followed by secondary caries (33%) and para functional habits (16%). Conclusion: This study revealed that fracture is the main cause of restoration failure in patients with moderate and low risk of caries along with survival rate of restoration less than 5 years.
