Abstract Share this page

The Peer Assessment Rating (PAR) index is commonly used to evaluate occlusal outcomes after orthodontic treatment. We compared the PAR outcomes of 40 consecutively treated orthodontic patients and 40 orthognathic patients to evaluate the standard of care given. A patient-centred questionnaire was used to examine patients' perceptions of the benefits of orthognathic treatment. PAR scores of orthodontic and orthognathic patients improved by a mean of 77% and 74%, respectively, after treatment indicating that excellent to good occlusal results were achieved for both groups. A high quality occlusal outcome is important for all patients as good intercuspation at the end of treatment is thought to improve stability. Most orthognathic patients reported improvements in their dental and facial appearance and thought that the treatment had been beneficial.
