Description des pratiques des chirurgiens-dentistes de Bordeaux Métropole dans la prise en charge des maladies parodontales

Abstract : Introduction: Periodontal diseases are the main cause of tooth loss among adults. In France, their prevalence is valued at 90%. They are a major public health problem. The purpose of this study was to assess periodontal practices among dental practitioners working in Bordeaux Métropole. Materials and Methods: After a phone request, a 36 closed-questions questionnaire was sent by mail to 449 practitioners. 128 answers were obtained. Results: 84% of dental practitioners reported treating chronic periodontitis while 55% reported treating aggressive periodontitis. Non-surgical treatments were mostly realised (scaling, root planning, periodontal maintenance), especially among female practitioners. More than 40% of practitioners felt a lack of training. Discussion: Dental practitioners seemed good to diagnose periodontal issues however they were less confident in their abilities to manage them. This fact was consistent with findings! from other studies. Undergraduate training in periodontics seems to be insufficient to acquire all the necessary skills. Improvements are to be planned.
