Background: This procedure, known as root canal treatment, is widely used in modern dental care. Modern endodontics frequently includes the introduction of many modern devices, materials, and methods, and yet it is one of the fastest-expanding fields in everyday clinical practice. Root canal fillings, coronal restorations, and the dentist's own knowledge, attitude, and expertise all have a role in the success of endodontic therapy, which is why it is important to maintain these high standards. Aim and Objectives: This study's objectives were similar to those of the aforementioned audit to collect data on the various approaches, specific and regular strategies, materials, and attitudes utilized by both general dental specialists and endodontists during root trench treatment, to analyze these choices in depth, and to disseminate endodontic treatment standards to evaluate the state of current practice and make adjustments as necessary. Methodology: The materials and techniques used by general dentists during root canal treatment were the subjects of a survey. Before the research itself could begin, a questionnaire had to be created and tested in advance. Results: The current study's findings provide light on the mindsets, strategies, supplies, and procedures used by dentists during root canal treatment. In the field of health-care evaluation, the survey questionnaire is a frequent tool. In this investigation, data were acquired by interviewing dentists in person and writing down their responses, a method that ultimately helped eliminate bias. Conclusion: Using the tried-and-true method of positioning the apical stop 1 mm from the radiographic apex, most dentists today continue to do so. The trend toward doing root canal treatment in a single office visit applies to all patient types. As a remarkable characteristic, both types of responders made very little use of rubber dams for isolation purposes during endodontic treatment.
