With growing interest into zirconia as a
biomaterial in dentistry, a lot of research has been
invested in it and its behaviour as a dental material.
Zirconia has a variety of clinical applications because of
its favourable mechanical, chemical and optical
properties and excellent biocompatibility. Hence, in this
study, we conducted a survey on the awareness of
zirconia biocompatibility among dental interns.
Aim-To assess the knowledge and awareness on
zirconia biocompatibility and to highlight the need to
learn more about zirconia and its clinical implication
among dental interns.
Materials and method-A cross-sectional
questionnaire study was conducted with 18 questions,
divided into four forms to know different
understandings and perceptions about zirconia
biocompatibility among dental interns. A total of 100
participants took part in the survey. With their consent
for the study, they chose the answers based on their
knowledge and understanding with their free will. The
data collection was done by convenience sampling. The
statistics were calculated using SPSS (Statistical
Package for Social Sciences) software version 21.0.
