Abstract

Background. Determining what dentists know and believe about periodontal tissue properties is important to establish prevention practices. The present study aimed to investigate the knowledge, attitude, and practice of general dental practitioners about the properties of periodontal tissue around retainable teeth in Birjand, Northeast Iran. Methods. The knowledge, practice, and attitude of 91 dentists about periodontal tissue properties around retainable teeth were assessed by a validated researcher-made questionnaire. Results. The results showed that the mean score of dentists’ attitude, knowledge, and practice were 70.7, 88.2, and 77, respectively. The mean score of the attitude of male dentists was higher than females significantly (P = 0.014). Conclusion. It is highly recommended that continuing courses should be held to improve their knowledge.
