Évaluation du niveau de connaissance des patients du pôle de médecine bucco-dentaire du CHU de Pellegrin face à la maladie parodontale. Étude qualitative

Abstract : Context: periodontal diseases (PD) are infectious pathologies. In France, they affect 82% of the population over 35 years old and are responsible for 30 to 40% of tooth loss. Despite its high prevalence, this pathology is little mentioned into medical profession, national prevention campaigns and media. There are few studies evaluating the level of patients’ knowledge on this disease. Objectif: to assess the level of knowledge of adult patients on PD consulting the University Hospital Center for Medicine and Oral Surgery by analyzing their stories. Method: we set up a qualitative study based on semi-directive interviews in the oral medicine department of the University hospital center of Pellegrin. Results: we included 10 participants, with a mean age of 59.1 years. Patients' knowledge on oral hygiene was limited. Participants-knowledge’s level on periodontal disease, its causes, consequences, and treatments was low. Patients with diagnosed periodontitis had a higher level of knowledge about their disease. Conclusion: the diagnosis and treatment of PD depend on the patient’s involvement in his oral health care. We highlighted in this study that patients do not feel concerned by periodontal disease. Also, their knowledge’s level does not allow them to protect themselves against this pathology. We think that it is necessary to increase the knowledge’s level of the population on this pathology in order to ensure a better management of it. It seems importance to conduct more studies on this subject to support the need for a national prevention plan against PD.
