Abstract

Objective: To compare the satisfaction and quality of life of complete denture elderly users and non-users, (but who need denture). Methods: This is a cross-sectional study. The sample consisted of 62 elderly, 31 users (G1) and 31 non-users (G2) of complete denture (CD). For all participants, satisfaction (Gurgel et al., 2015) and quality of life (Oral Health Impact Profile for edentulous - OHIP-Edent) questionnaires were applied. Data were analyzed by descriptive analysis, followed by statistical tests to evaluate differences in satisfaction and quality of life before CD users and non-users. Results: The comparative analysis of the socio-demographic aspects between G1 and G2 showed no statistically significant difference (p>0.05). The majority were female (n=51; 82.3%), married (n=20; 32.3%), retired (n=45; 72.6%), income up to one salary (n=44; 71.0%) and incomplete elementary school (n=35; 56.5%). Satisfaction was significantly higher in CD users in all parameters evaluated (p<0.05). Among the indicators of quality of life, only physical pain (p=0.123) and psychological limitation (p=0.087) showed no statistically significant difference (p>0.05).  Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study, rehabilitation with CD promoted a positive impact on the life of the elderly, guaranteeing greater satisfaction and better quality of life. In addition, the VAS and adjective scales presented substantial agreement.
