Abstract (English):
Subject. There are methods for assessing dental and maxillary (including implant) prosthetics. Objectives. The goal is to create our own method for assessing the degree of satisfaction with the results of prosthetics, which will be compact, easy to use, perform calculations, while being objective, clear and conclusive. Methodology. Three well-known validated methods for assessing the results of dental prosthetics were analyzed: the Likert scale, Denture Satisfaction Questionnaire (DSQ) and Visual Analogue Scale (Wolfart S. e.a., 2006). The above validated scales-questionnaires were the basis for creating our own method for assessing the degree of satisfaction with the results of prosthetics. The developed scale was clinically tested. The study involved 46 people (9 men; 27 women) aged 59 to 76 years (mean age 68.2 ± 5.1 years). Results. An initial successful validation of the method was carried out. With rare exceptions, after the briefing, all the subjects quickly enough (5–7 minutes) coped with filling out the scale-questionnaire without experiencing any apparent difficulties. Parallel use in the same patients of the questionnaire by Wolfart S. (2006) and Mericske-Stern R. et al. (2009) demonstrated a significant general focus and an average degree of closeness of these questionnaires with the author's method (respectively: ; ). Conclusions: 1. A method for assessing patient satisfaction with the results of dental prosthetics has been developed. 2. A distinctive feature of the questionnaire is the scale's compactness, relative ease of use and calculations. 3. The proposed method can be used in a clinical setting, with an expert assessment of the quality of prosthetics, as well as in the work of conflict expert commissions.
