Abstract


Introduction: Dental caries continues to be an extremely prevalent disease involving a large part of the worldwide population, especially those more disadvantaged. A huge need for restorative procedures in clinical dentistry is still seen, with placement (and replacement) of restorations being one of the most widespread dental procedures constituting for a substantial part of the dentists' clinical practice. Materials and methods: This is a cross-sectional study conducted among the dental professionals in Riyadh using an online survey. Dental clinics and hospitals in Riyadh were contacted and participants were requested to fill up the survey. Results: 46% of females were in the favor of giving marginal restoration instead of repair in cases with marginal failure as compared to 30% males (p-value: .000). When faced with a fracture adjacent to a restoration, 42% of females chose to repair the anterior tooth if the fracture was involving the incisal region as compared to 33% of males (p-value: .012). Conclusion: Female dentists were in the favor of repairing as compared to males.

Keywords: Repair, replace, defective restoration.
