Abstract

Objective: Patient’s satisfaction with prosthodontic treatment is affected by many factors. Success of removable denture treatment can be measured using an index to evaluate patients’ perceptions of their treatment and their oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL). To analyze the relationship between patient satisfaction using Turker’s patient’s perceptions questionnaire and the OHRQoL of removable denture wearers. Methods: One-hundred and forty removable denture wearers (complete dentures, single complete dentures, and removable partial dentures) participated in this cross-sectional study. Participants were interviewed using a validated Turker’s patient’s perceptions questionnaire in Indonesia and an OHRQoL questionnaire. Results: There was a significant relationship between patient’s satisfaction and OHRQoL (p=0.000). Multivariate analysis showed that the duration of using removable dentures had a significant effect on patient’s satisfaction using Turker’s patient’s perceptions questionnaire. The experience of using removable dentures showed a significant effect on OHRQoL. Conclusion: There was a relationship between patient’s satisfaction and their OHRQoL. The duration of using removable dentures affected patient’s satisfaction and the experience of using removable dentures affected OHRQoL.
