Orthèses occlusales en France : évaluation des pratiques professionnelles

Abstract : Occlusal appliances, commonly known as “occlusal splints”, are one of the most employed therapeutical solutions in case of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) nowadays. After a literature analyse revealing the actual consensus regarding the indication of occlusal appliances, the conception and elaboration principles, along with the directions for use in a first part, this thesis aims at evaluating the professional practices of the dental surgeons in France concerning those appliances, by completing a cross-sectional survey. A statistical analysis of the 771 answers with the use of a Chi-Square test led to several observations, indicating a true need of practices harmonization but also an appetite for this theme among the participating practitioners.
