SATISFACTION OF JORDANIAN POPULATION ABOUT THEIR GENERAL DENTAL AESTHETIC
Nowadays Jordanian patients visiting dental clinics are seeking not only treatment for dental caries, root canal treatment or for gum disease ,but also demanding that their dental appearance must be improved. So understanding their esthetic complaint and knowing their expectation and how to make them satisfied are important factors to give them satisfied esthetic result. In this study we asked the patient about their general dental satisfaction such as color of the teeth, shape and alignment of the teeth. Therefore, it was necessary to understand their esthetic desires and to take appropriate measures. An observational study was carried out.
This cross sectional study was conducted on a group of Jordanian adults visiting dental clinics at King Hussein Medical Center in Amman from January to June 2020.
A written questionnaire was given to each and every patient after gaining their verbal consent. Questions were explained to them and a researcher was available in case help was needed for clarification. A total of 590 questionnaires were delivered. Five hundred seventy were filled out (280 females and 290 males) with a response rate of 96.6%. Results were analyzed and studied by researchers using SPSS statistical analysis.
Only 38.4% of the present study samples were found satisfied with their dental appearance. Gender difference was not statistically significant.
