Resumen

ORREGO-RAMIREZ, Carola et al. Percepción estética del paciente desdentado comparada con la opinión de expertos: The aesthetic self-perception of the edentulous patient compared to the opinion of experts. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp.54-58. ISSN 0719-0107.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.piro.2015.11.001.

Objective To determine the relationship between the aesthetic self-perception of edentulous patients rehabilitated with dentures and the opinion of facial aesthetics experts. Materials and methods Two facial 3D photographs, without dentures and with new dentures, respectively, were taken of a convenience sample of 40 edentulous patients. The images were subsequently shown to the patients, and they assessed their satisfaction of the facial change using Likert scale question. The photographs of the patients were also shown to 5 professionals with specialties related to facial aesthetics. Facial change was evaluated using the same Likert scale as the patients. Finally, the results were compared using the non-parametric Wilcoxon test to determine any statistical differences between the preferences of patients and the experts. Results The perception of patients and experts are positive. Significant statistical differences were found after comparing the responses of both groups, with p=.00, with the experts being more critical in their assessment. Conclusion The aesthetic perception of edentulous patients rehabilitated with complete dentures and the opinion of a panel of aesthetic experts are concordant, both being positive. It is important to note that experts were more critical in their assessment.
