    Introduction: Success of endodontic treatment depends on different factors, and the probability of failures varies significantly in different cases. Although some of the problems which occur during or after endodontic treatment are not predict, some are due to the dentist’s failures in attending to details. Materials and Method: Questionnaires were given to the students during their class hours and then collected within 15 min. The questionnaire was a closed-ended type consisting of 15 questions, of which 6 were knowledge- based, 5 were attitude-based, and 5 were practice-based questions. The questionnaire contained multiple responses. The answers to each question were numerically coded, and the data were entered in the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software 14.0 version (Chicago, SPSS Inc.). The results were analysed by descriptive statistics including frequencies and percentages. Results: According to the findings of the present study, students had a higher level of knowledge about treatment and prognosis of procedural accidents than about the causes and prevention. Conclusion: According to the findings of the present study, students had a higher level of knowledge about treatment and prognosis of procedural accidents than about the causes and prevention. This can be acquired due to clinical experience. The present study, considering the level of knowledge of dental students of Saveetha Dental College, can serve as a preliminary stage for future studies focusing on students’ performance. The research findings proved that dental students of Saveetha Dental College had a mediocre knowledge about procedural accidents of endodontics.
