Abstract: Background: Longer lifespans and advances in medicine have been matched by an increase in the prevalence of patients at risk of infection who are likely to receive endodontic treatment. The objective of this study was to assess knowledge of dental practitioners regarding the present guidelines for the management of cardiopathic patients during endodontic treatment.
Methods: This is a descriptive online survey, involving interviewing 200 dentists. The questions focused on the different types of heart disease and the indications or contraindications of endodontic therapy for the treatment of irreversible pulpitis. The questionnaire was calibrated and validated by the Scientific Committee.
Results: Almost all respondents reported knowledge of Infective Endocarditis (94.5%) and focal infection (95.5%).51.5 percent of respondents were unaware of high-risk heart disease (Group A) and lower-risk heart disease (Group B) 28% of the respondents did not find it necessary to establish a dialogue with the general practitioner.
Conclusion: A low level of knowledge of the current guidelines was found among dentists. Therefore, attempts should be made to teach the current guidelines in undergraduate/postgraduate dental education.
