Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of age, gender, denture-wearing history, and some clinical variables on psychometric traits of the patients who request reconstruction of their removable partial dentures. Fifty-seven patients (22 males and 35 females; mean age 61.0 years) completed the psychometric measurements regarding various aspects of their present partial dentures using visual analogue scales (VAS). Female patients indicated significantly less satisfaction with comfort of dentures than males. Younger patients expressed less satisfaction with esthetics of their dentures than older patients. Period of wearing present denture significantly correlated with psychometric measures of pain, comfort and general satisfaction, suggesting that this clinical variable is an important factor. There was no significant correlation between patient's general satisfaction and retention/stability of denture assessed by the examiner.
