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.
