Currently there is no consensus about which is the shortest but still suitable questionnaire for Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL) assessment indenture wearers. The aim of this study was to test OHIP-EDENT and GOHAI in a sample of denture wearers. Type of denture (complete or partial), age and location (upper or lower jaws) were compared. The results showed that OHIP-EDENT was more sensible than GOHAI, except for Kennedy Class I and II partial dentures. Patients with lower complete dentures had higher OHRQoL impairment using OHIP-EDENT. GOHAI showed underestimated OHRQoL values for individuals over 60 years old.
