Abstract: Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the knowledge, attitude and practice about Pre-Endodontic Buildup (PEB) among Postgraduates, Academicians and Practitioners who perform root canal treatment in India. Materials & Methods: A cross sectional online survey was conducted among Postgraduates, Academicians and Private Practitioners who perform root canal treatment in India. About 160 participants enrolled and their consent was obtained. The information was collected from each participant through structured questionnaires containing answers in the form of multiple choices. Statistical Analysis: Chi Square Goodness of Fit test was used to compare the distribution in the responses for the study questionnaire by the study participants. The level of significance was set at P<0.05. Results: The following was inferred from this study: a) Overall knowledge score towards PEB was about 66.3% b) II. Knowledge scores significantly differed among Endodontists (89.3%) and Non-endodontists (46.4%) c) III. Lower Practice scores among Endodontists and Non endodontists were associated with lack of time while insufficient knowledge was mostly associated with Non endodontists. Conclusion: The findings of this study suggests that efforts should be made to increase the awareness of PEB among Endodontists and Non endodontists to improve their practices and thereby enhance the success of treatment.
