Knowledge Attitude and Practice of Radisection And Hemisection Among Interns and Dental Practitioners

Author: HARRITA.S , DHANRAJ GANAPATHY
Abstract: The disciplines of endodontics and periodontics fuse when molars that have bifurcation or trifurcation involvements are treated with hemisection and radosection. Attempts to save parts of teeth go back 100 years or more, but it is the increased predictability of success of endodontic therapy and the increased sophistication of periodontal treatment that have given us the means to save molars with furcation problems that, otherwise, would be lost. When restorative dentistry has already been finished, and the retention of part of the tooth will extend the life of a crown or fixed partial denture, the patient certainly deserves the option of hemisection or root amputation rather than extraction. The aim of the study is to evaluate the knowledge, attitude and practice of hemisection and radisection among dentists. This survey is conducted among dental students and dental practitioners. A self administered questionnaire was made and circulated among the participants. The sample size was 132 and the questionnaire was circulated through online means. The data was obtained and the results were tabulated using excel and statistical analysis was done using SPSS software. From the survey , all dental practitioners (58) and interns (72) knew that there are procedures to save the tooth when furcation is involved; however interns (2) didn't know about such procedures , however Pearson's Chi square test was not significant (p>0.05). Dental practitioners (56) and interns (67) knew that mandibular molars commonly undergo hemisection , however the Pearson's Chi square test was not significant (p>0.05). From this study it can be concluded that both dental practitioners and interns had sufficient knowledge about hemisection and radisection. However only dental practitioners who are having experience and confidence have responded that they will be able to perform hemisection and radisection in their regular practice. It is always better to save and preserve natural tooth as much as possible and it is important to train the upcoming dental graduates in performing hemisection and radisection.
