La supplémentation fluorée chez les enfants de 0 à 6 ans : enquête sur les pratiques d’un échantillon de médecins généralistes dans les départements de Paris et de l’Essonne

Abstract : A consensus is reached concerning the interest in fluoride in the prevention of dental caries. In order to control its use, different recommendations have been released. This analysis aims at establishing whether the practices of general practitioners comply with the last AFSSAPS recommendations from 2008. 100 randomly selected general practitioners in the Paris and Essonne “départements” were interviewed by telephone about their prescribing practices with regards to fluoride supplements. The study results show that GPs are not very much aware of the AFSSAPS recommendations. They still prescribe too many fluoride supplements (52% of the GPs in Essonne and 56% of the GPs in Paris prescribe fluoride to children less than 6 months) and only a few of them follow the recommendations for the assessment of the caries risk (26% in Essonne and 22% in Paris) and the fluoride checkup (4% in Essonne and 2% in Paris). Doctors are faced with different barriers when they follow up the recommendations: lack of information, lack of training, lack of interest in oral prevention, lack of time and complicated recommendations. Strategies could be implemented in order to encourage the compliance of GPs with the recommendations on fluoride use and help them update their knowledge and practices.
