Materials and Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, the knowledge and practice of 150 general dentists in Yazd in relation to the restoration of endodontically treated teeth were studied by a valid and reliable questionnaire including demographic characteristics, 8 knowledge questions and 13 practice questions. Data were analyzed by SPSS17 software and t-test, ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient.
Results: The dentists participating in the study were 54.7% female and 45.3% male with a mean. Their average score of knowledge was 11.08±2.89 out of 16 points. There was no statistically significant difference between the average score of knowledge in terms of gender, job experience and participation in related retraining (P-value <0.05). they preferred the cast posts and cores for the anterior (74 %) and posterior (74.7%) teeth. Most dentists used glass ionomer as a cement (92%) and normal saline as a root canal cleaner (72%).
Conclusion: the average score of dentists' knowledge regarding the restoration of endodontically treated teeth was good.
