ABSTRACT:Background: High demand for aesthetic and metal-free restoration has developed the potential to minimize the inaccuracies in conventional techniques which helps the dentists in developing restoration faster, easier and more perfect. The purpose of the study was to assess the awareness, attitude and knowledge of computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) among dental professionals.
Materials and Methods: A questionnaire study was conducted among dental professionals. A structured, self-administered, close-ended questionnaire was designed to collect the data which consisted of two parts and comprised of 31 questions related to knowledge, attitudes and practices in CAD/CAM among dental professionals. Cronbach alpha value was 0.751. Statistical analysis was done using descriptive statistics.
Results: In this study, there were a total of 178 participants out of which 158 were of age group 23-35 years and 25 were of age group 35-45 years while the rest were from 45+ years and above. Around 73.6% of the participants were aware of CAD/CAM system while others were unaware or not sure. About 39.7% of participants have used CAD/CAM system in their clinical practice while others have not.
Conclusion: Most of the participants were aware and interested in CAD/CAM technology but they have insufficient clinical knowledge and practice.
