The oral health status of children with special health care needs (SHCN) can affect their quality of life wich domains of the Brazilian version of the Early Childohood Oral Health Impact Scale (B-ECOHIS). A cross-sectional study was conducted in children with SHCN (aged 1 to 9 years), who underwent an oral examination for the assessment of dental caries severity. Parents/caregivers answered two questionnaires, one on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) - B-ECOHIS, and one on socioeconomic characteristics...

The aim of this study was to investigate the association between orthodontic treatment need and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) among 12-yr-old children. The study also assessed whether self-esteem modifies and/or moderates this relationship. Cross-sectional data on 406 schoolchildren aged 12 yr were analyzed. Data on socio-economic and demographic characteristics, dental pain, self-esteem, and OHRQoL were collected using validated questionnaires. Orthodontic treatment need was assessed, through dental examinations, using the dental aesthetic index (DAI)...

BACKGROUND: Loss of teeth has a negative influence on essential oral functions. It is important to understand edentulous patients' perceptions about the impacts of treatment options on their oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) and satisfaction. AIMS: To appraise the systematic reviews (with/without meta-analysis) that investigate the impacts of complete conventional dentures (CCDs) and/or implant-retained overdentures (IRODs) on the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) and satisfaction among edentulous patients...

PURPOSE: Ethnic background is known to be related to oral health and socioeconomic position (SEP). In the context of patient-centered oral health care, and the growing number of migrant children, it is important to understand the influence of ethnic background on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL). Therefore, we aimed to identify the differences in children's OHRQoL between ethnic groups, and the contribution of oral health status, SEP, and immigration characteristics. METHODS: This study was part of the Generation R Study, a prospective cohort study conducted in Rotterdam, the Netherlands...

BACKGROUND: Parents/caregivers play an important role in deciding whether their children will undergo orthodontic treatment or not. Their perceptions also have an influence on other choices involving orthodontic treatment. The purpose of this study was to investigate the difference and correlation between the ratings given by children and their parents or caregivers on their oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) before, during and after orthodontic treatment. METHODS: In this ongoing observational prospective cohort study, 498 children aged 11 to 16 years-old and one of their parents/caregivers completed questionnaires before (T0), 1 year after start (T1) and 1 month after the end of orthodontic treatment (T2)...

Background: Given the prevalence of malocclusions and the impact they have on oral health, patients' quality of life assessments provide useful information, not only in terms of patients' needs and expectations before treatment, but about whether or not orthodontic treatments meet them satisfactorily. The present systematic review was carried out to evaluate changes in the quality of life of adolescent patients after orthodontic treatment. Material and Methods: An electronic search was conducted in the Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane and Scopus databases...

PURPOSE: To assess children's oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) three years after implementation of three treatment protocols for managing cavitated carious dentine lesions in primary molars by parent proxy report with the Brazilian Early Childhood Oral Health Impact Scale (B-ECOHIS) and to assess the level of agreement between the children's self-reporting and the parents' reporting of the children's OHRQoL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Schoolchildren aged 6 to 7 were included in a clinical trial that compared three treatment protocols for managing cavitated carious dentine lesions: CRT (Conventional Treatment); ART (Atraumatic Restorative Treatment) and UCT (Ultraconservative Treatment)...

BACKGROUND: Health education has a focus on knowledge dissemination and advice giving, which seldom translates into behavioral changes. Motivational interviewing (MI) has potential for helping elderly patients. However, most oral health studies conducted to date have excluded older individuals, and the outcomes examined have been exclusively clinical. This study examines the treatment fidelity of an individual-based MI intervention and assesses baseline characteristics related to older adults' self-efficacy (SE), oral-health-related quality of life (OHRQoL), oral health knowledge, and facilitators, barriers, and confidence on achieving MI goals...

Comparing oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) measures can facilitate selecting the most appropriate one for a particular research question/setting. Three child OHRQoL measures Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ11⁻14 ), the Child Oral Health Impact Profile (COHIP) and the Caries Impacts and Experiences Questionnaire for Children (CARIES-QC) were used with 335 10- to 13-year-old participants in a supervised tooth-brushing programme in New Zealand. The use of global questions enabled their validity to be examined...

BACKGROUND: Molar-incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is associated with unfavorable dental conditions such as dental caries and may consequently impact Oral Health-Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL). OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of MIH on OHRQoL in children with early mixed dentition. METHOD: A population-based cross-sectional study of 728 8-year-old children from the public school system in Curitiba, Brazil, was conducted. The Child Perception Questionnaire for 8 to 10-year-olds (CPQ8-10 ) was used to evaluate OHRQoL...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess self- and proxy-rated changes in the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in adult patients with intellectual disabilities after dental treatment in general anesthesia. METHODS: The OHRQoL in 52 adult patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities was assessed prior to dental treatment in general anesthesia (t0), 2 to 3 (t1) and 12 weeks (t2) postoperatively. Therefore, patients and primary cargivers were surveyed using either the 5-item short form of the Oral Health Impact Profile translated into easy language (OHIP-G5-easy, self-rating, n = 27) or the 14-item short form of the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP-G14, proxy-rating, n = 51), respectively...

With populations aging around the world, the need for complete dentures is likely to increase in Brazil and other developing countries, as well among low-income populations globally, making the teaching of cost-efficient techniques to dental students essential. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of complete dentures fabricated by the simplified method in comparison to the conventional method regarding patients' oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) and satisfaction, dentures' functional quality, and masticatory performance of patients who were rehabilitated by dental students...
