Knowledge of Academic Omfs in Regenerative Nanotechnology in Field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery: A Questionnaire Survey
Main Article Content
Aim: The purpose of this research was to assess the knowledge of regenerative nanotechnology in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Methodology: A survey was conducted amongst 42 oral surgeons with the help of a questionnaire which had 10 questions assessing their knowledge regarding the application of regenerative nanotechnology in their field and how it can be improved. Their responses were subjected to descriptive statistical analysis using SPSS 25.0.
Results: It was observed that the oral surgeons felt that there is need for more imparting of knowledge to budding practitioners (1.006, p=0.03), which was statistically significant. Around 69% of the participants felt that nanotechnology can be effectively used in cases of oral cancer for regeneration of the lost tissue (0.956, p=0.011).
Conclusion: It is imperative for implementing course related to nanotechnology in the curriculum of the post graduate studies which will help the future budding dental professionals to be confident about this emerging technology.
