Abstract
Purpose: When assessing the outcomes of dental treatment, it is important to consider the clinicians as well as the patients’ point of view. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the development of oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in patients with modified complete dentures and the association between OHRQoL and overall patient satisfaction. Methodology: The study population included 30 patients with severely resorbed ridges, who wore modified complete dentures fabricated within a span of 1-3 years. The modifications were done in impression techniques, jaw relations, teeth arrangement, fabrication of the complete dentures; according to the clinical condition of the patients. Patients were requested to complete a questionnaire that was designed to show a semi quantitative degree of satisfaction with their dentures (subjective evaluation). The oral condition and denture quality was assessed clinically by an experienced clinician (objective evaluation). After evaluating the questionnaires, the improvement in the quality of life of the patients, including mastication, esthetics etc; from the patients’ perspective as well as the clinician’s perspective was judged. Statistical analyses were carried out and correlations assessed using the Pearson chi-square test.
