L'activation de la solution d'irrigation en endodontie : quelle place dans les pratiques libérales en Nouvelle-Aquitaine ?

Abstract : Introduction: The disinfection of the canal system during endodontic treatment is essentially ensured by irrigation. Currently, different systems are available to practitioners to optimize the effectiveness of canal irrigation solutions. Very few studies are interested in the use of these different systems in liberal practice. Materials and method: A questionnaire was sent by e-mail to the Councils of the Departmental Order Constituting New Aquitaine. In addition, it was distributed via social networks to private groups reserved for Dentists. Results: 164 questionnaires could be exploited. Our sample is representative of the population in Nouvelle-Aquitaine with regard to sex, but it is not representative for the diploma year as well as for the geographical distribution. 34% of practitioners use an activation system. The most frequently used systems are ultrasound. The majority of practitioners who do not use activation explain it by a lack of knowledge and training. Discussion: The frequencies of use obtained are much higher than the only study dealing with the use of an activation system, conducted in Saudi Arabia. Participation in ongoing training on activation, as well as the introduction of a simple and inexpensive system on the market, would appear to increase the frequency of use of an activation system. Conclusion: Each activation system has its advantages and disadvantages. Although the activation of the irrigation solution is not yet rooted in professional practice, it is interesting to see that the majority of practitioners involved in this study are interested in training in irrigation.
