To analyze the relationship between types of complete denture and patient satisfaction using the validated Indonesian version of patient's denture assessment (PDA-ID). A cross-sectional study was conducted that consisted of 19 subjects (14 male, 5 female), aged 45-70 years old, who wore types of complete denture (conventional complete dentures, overdentures, or a single complete denture). All participants were selected through consecutive sampling methods then classified into conventional complete denture (8 subjects), overdenture (2 subjects) and single complete denture (9 subjects). The patients were asked to complete the PDA questionnaire with the age, sex, education level, duration of edentulousness (less than 6 months or more than 6 months) and previous denture experience. The PDA score was compared between patients with different types of complete denture, different age, sex, education level, duration of edentulousness and previous denture experience. Statistically, there were no significant differences in patient satisfaction between different types of complete denture (p = 0.830), age (p = 0.465), sex (p = 0.693), education level (p = 0.219), duration of edentulousness (p = 0.211), or denture experience (p = 0.363). Type of complete denture, age, sex, education level, duration of edentulousness, and denture experience were not associated with patient satisfaction with the denture. The results of this study found that with careful treatment planning and procedure of good quality during denture construction, the type of complete denture should not affect patient satisfaction.
