Abstract

We sought to analyze the relationship between mastication performance (objectively and subjectively) and quality of life among patients with posterior implant-supported single crowns. A mastication performance evaluation was conducted on 60 respondents with posterior implantsupported single crowns. An analysis was conducted to determine the relationship between mastication performance and quality of life and its correlation with age, sex, education, number of implants and how long since the implant was installed. There was a significant correlation between quality of life with mastication performance assessed subjectively (p = 0.000) but no significant correlation between quality of life and mastication performance assessed objectively (p = 0.864). There was no significant relationship between mastication performance assessed objectively and that assessed subjectively (p = 0.818). Quality of life showed a significant correlation only with age (p = 0.002).
