    Background: Periodontal health is a prerequisite of successful comprehensive dentistry. To achieve the long-term therapeutic targets of comfort, good function, treatment predictability, longevity, and ease of restorative and maintenance care, active periodontal infection must be treated and controlled before the initiation of restorative dentistry. Periodontal treatment is undertaken to ensure the establishment of stable gingival margins before tooth preparation. Non-inflamed, healthy tissues are less likely to change as a result of subgingival restorative treatment or post-restoration periodontal care. Hence, certain measures should be taken for periodontally compromised abutments in fixed partial denture (FPD). Aim: The aim of the study was to create awareness on the management of periodontally compromised abutments in FPD. Materials and Methods: A self-administered questionnaire with 15 questions will be prepared and circulated among 100 undergraduates, postgraduates and practitioners from Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals. Level of confidence and awareness was rated according to the interns and practitioners knowledge and the capacity. Data collection and analysis will be done based on frequencies and percentage values using SPSS software. Results: Nearly 32% of participants say that prognosis of FPD in periodontally compromised abutments is compromised, 26% of participants say fair, 25% of participants say poor, and 16% of participants say good prognosis. 42% of participants answered that bone grafting can be done in periodontally compromised abutments, 13% of them does not practice bone grafting and 41% of them were not sure about it. Conclusion: In the present study, the awareness rate on the management of periodontally compromised abutments in FPD among 100 undergraduates, postgraduates, and practitioners was moderate, hence to improve more knowledge and awareness certain awareness programs, dental education programs should be undertaken.
