AbstractThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the level of endo-perio lesions’ knowledge and awareness among dentists in Bhatinda city.
Materials and Methods: The study includes 156 dentists who responded to the survey among 180 dentists. Twelve questions about demographic data, risk factors, and the definition of the disease were asked in the two-part survey. The data was examined using the T test, Chi-square test, and Mann-Whitney U test in Minitab 17 statistical software.
Results: Periodontists and endodontists were shown to be considerably aware of endo-perio lesions (p=0.001 and p <0.001, respectively). It was discovered that general practitioners were largely unaware about these lesions.
Conclusion: Other than endodontists and periodontologists, general dentists were found to have less knowledge of endo-perio lesions.
