Abstract

Background: This study aims to assess the knowledge, attitude, and perception among dentists toward occlusal stamp technique for composite restorations. Materials & Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out on a total number of 300 dental surgeons (Male=150; Female=150) participated in this study with age ranges from 20- to 55-year-old to know the knowledge, attitude, and perception among dentist's toward occlusal stamp technique for composite restorations. Written informed consent was obtained from the participants after explaining to them the purpose of the study. The sampling method included in the study was a simple random sampling method. A self-administered structured questionnaire was developed, and the data was collected. Both descriptive and analytical statistical measurements were done. Results: The majority of participants, 255 (85%) were said that they think that occlusal is important in restorative dentistry. 285 (95%) were said that they heard of occlusal stamp technique. When asked about the participant's about how they achieve occlusal in composite restoration, 41% said with finishing and polishing, 18% said with carving, nearly 32% said it by occlusal stamp technique. Conclusions: The overall knowledge and awareness was good among the dentists. The occlusal stamp technique is effective for direct composite resin restoration in posterior tooth with hidden caries and extensive dentin involvement. In addition, this technique minimizes the operative time by eliminating post-restoration occlusal adjustments.
