Abstract

Progress in regenerative endodontic procedures needs approval by clinicians, but there is little or no
evidence. This study aimed to examine the awareness, mindset and experience of regenerative endodontics
among Indian dental residents. For the survey they used a self-administered questionnaire which consisted
of three parts; part A focused on the background and experience of dentists, part B pursued the viewpoint,
views and decision of the dentist about the utilize of PRF and Regenerative techniques, Whereas part C
contained questions focused on their clinical experience. Findings indicate that maximum respondents knew
about PRF during postgraduate training but 90% are willing to attend PRF and REP training. However,
few claimed to have used any form of regenerative therapy in their work. Finally, it can be concluded
that findings are an indication of optimistic dental residents concerning the use of regenerative endodontic
methods; however, further analysis and routine training is needed.
