Ayse Gul KILINC TARTAK | Haydar ALBAYRAK | Hasan Onder GUMUS

Abstract: Patient satisfaction is one of the most important criteria in prosthesis usage. Some studies reported that implant-supported full dentures are more advantageous than conventional dentures in terms of both oral health and functional limitations, and also give better results in terms of patient satisfaction. In this study, using the 14-item Oral Health Impact Profile questionnaire, it was aimed to compare the quality of life in terms of oral health and patient satisfaction in patients using conventional or implant-supported full dentures, and to examine the related factors. The findings of the present study show that patients using implant-supported prostheses generally have a much better improvement in quality of life than those using conventional prosthesis in terms of all oral health and patient discomfort issues such as functional limitation, physical pain, psychological discomfort, physical disability, psychological disability, social disability and handicap.
