Evaluation of Endodontic Treatment Prognosis with Dental Implants and Determination of Stress Levels of Dentists During Endodontic Treatment: A Survey Study. Hacettepe University Faculty of Dentistry, Specialization Thesis in Endodontics, Ankara, 2017. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the preference trends of dentists between doing root canal treatment to teeth or applying dental implant after extraction for different cases and to determine the levels of stress experienced during endodontic treatment stages through a survey. Surveys were delivered via e-mail to 642 participants using the Turkish Dental Association's database; 430 of these participants are general dentists, 65 of whom are endodontists and 147 of whom are specialist dentists in other specialized fields. Descriptive statistics such as mean, median, standard deviation, minimum, maximum, weighted percentages were used with SPSS 22.00 program in statistical analysis of collected data. Values were analyzed visually (percent graphs) and analytical (Chi square test) according to their normal distribution. Statistically significant results were obtained when the P value was below 0.05. It has been shown that dentists’ preference trends between endodontic treatment and implant and stress levels experienced at the endodontic treatment stages are related to their expertise, the institutions they work with, their gender, the time since graduation and the time they have been actively engaged in specialist areas of expertise. In the future, further studies detailed evaluation of these factors might help to obtain more detailed results.
