    Aim: The aim of this study is to find the attitude, materials, and methods employed by endodontists in working length (WL) determination for root canal treatments (RCTs). Objective: The objective is to determine the attitude, materials, and methods employed by endodontists in WL determination for RCTs. Background: WL determination is an important step in endodontic treatment to ensure the success of the RCT. It helps to find the length and the anatomy of the root canal and provides a foresight for proper shaping and obturation. Different methods and materials have been found and recently introduced such as the digital tactile sense and electronic apex locator. Recent advances in dentistry has made root canal determination more easier and more accurate which would help to provide better treatment and better success rate for endodontically treated teeth. Conclusion: This survey shows that the endodontists practicing in Chennai have a thorough and proper knowledge on WL determination and use appropriate materials and methods for proper diagnosis.
