Maladie parodontale et information du patient : étude sur la compréhension et les représentations de la maladie parodontale par des patients atteints de parodontite chronique

Abstract : Once the diagnosis is made, the patient receives a phase of periodontal preparation which includes the identification and evaluation of their risk factors as well as a therapeutic education of the patient about adequate oral hygiene. The patient then receives a periodontal therapy which includes scaling, surfacing and associated treatments, followed by a periodontal maintenance programme. Communication with the patient and their therapeutic education are inseparable from the administered mechanical treatments of chronic periodontal disease. The dentist cannot treat these pathologies alone - the patient's cooperation and training in oral hygiene are necessary. A qualitative survey was conducted in a hospital in order to try to understand what the patients know about and how they view their periodontal disease. The results of our analysis demonstrate that, although patients are relatively aware of the risk factors and their role in the treatment of their disease, they do lack information regarding the functioning and the maintenance phase of chronic periodontitis. This lack of knowledge about their disease is a critical factor for the failure of the patient's recovery. The role of the dentist is crucial in making sure the patient is well informed. Dentists should be aware that therapeutic education is essential and should find appropriate ways to meet this need.
