Expérience de la fracture instrumentale en endodontie : enquête auprès d'étudiants en odontologie

Abstract : Considering the high prevalence of endodontic treatments, instrument separation (IS) in endodontics is not so frequent. However, it could have adverse effects on the prognosis of the treatment. Several studies have considered the topic of IS but mostly from a technical or epidemiological point of view. A lack was identified regarding the exploration of dentists perceptions toward IS in endodontics and the way this undesirable event should be communicated to the patients. The aim of the present work was to explore the way 5th and 6th year dental students consider IS during endodontic treatments by questioning their clinical experience and perceptions. This study relied on auto administered questionnaires. Descriptive statistics were given for qualitative variables and presented in the form of frequency and percentage. The association between two categorical variables was tested using the Chi-square test of independence or the Fisher's exact test wherever appropriate. The present work provided an evaluation of IS experience by students and identified possibilities of educational improvement regarding the prevention and management of these undesirable events. This study followed the IMRaD model : Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion.
