Comparative Study of Patient Satisfaction on Receiving Biofunctional Prosthetic System (BPS) and Conventional Complete Denture
Abstract: Aim The aim of this study is to comparative study of patient satisfaction on receiving biofunctional prosthetic system (bps) and conventional complete denture Objectives The purpose of this study is to compare the relationship between patient satisfaction and the newly constructed prostheses in biofunctional and conventional complete denture, as it would indicate the success rate of the treatment given to the patient. Background Complete denture therapy is the most extensive used form of treatment for replacement of missing dentition. Biofunctional prosthetic system (BPS) is the system intended to work with the body in a biologically harmonious way, optimizing function, and giving comfort and natural appearance to the patient. Patient's satisfaction is an important element in evaluating the success rate of the treatment. Materials and methods This study is to be carried out on 100 patients, 50 patients who received conventional complete denture and 50 patients who received biofunctional prosthetic system (BPS) complete denture. After obtaining their written consent to participate in the study, a questionnaire will be filled in consultation with the patient. The details about the prosthesis will be recorded based on the patient's frank opinion. The patient's identity will be kept confidential. The questionnaire will be asked in the patient's own mother tongue. Once the questionnaire is complete for 100 patients, the results will be grouped based on the scale of very satisfied, satisfied, average, not satisfied, not at all satisfied for different parameters like (i) retention, (ii) aesthetic, (iii) speech, (iv) mastication, (v) finishing of the denture, and (vi) overall satisfaction. Results The patients with BPS complete denture were either very satisfied (n=29, 58%) or satisfied (n=21, 42%) with the denture in overall, whereas, the patients with conventional complete denture expressed various satisfactory level such as very satisfied (n=11, 22%0, satisfied (n=27, 54%), average (n=11, 22%) and not satisfied (n=1, 2%). The difference in the overall satisfactory level of the BPS denture wearer and conventional denture wearer is statistically significant (P<0.01). Conclusion This study showed that the biofunctional prosthetic system complete denture is better than the conventional complete denture in every respect from a patient's point of view. For completely edentulous patients, a biofunctional prosthetic system complete denture can be recommended as a viable option.
