Sažetak:
Patients’ and parents’ perception of malocclusion are important in determining orthodontic treatment demand, motivation and co-operation. The aim of this study was to investigate differences in perception of treatment need in currently orthodontically treated, previously treated and untreated subjects. The sample consisted of 3, 196 children and adolescents (1, 593 males and 1, 603 females) aged 8-19 years (mean age 13.0± ; 3.6 years) from 24 randomly selected public schools in Zagreb, Croatia. Objective treatment needs were assessed clinically using the Dental Aesthetic Index (DAI). Subjective treatment needs were estimated separately by an orthodontic resident, the child/adolescent and his/her parent using the Standardised Continuum of Aesthetic Need (SCAN) procedure. The children/adolescents completed a questionnaire that had five questions with five-point Likert-type scale answers concerning satisfaction with dental appearance, importance of teeth for facial appearance and malocclusion-related quality of life. Spearman correlation and logistic regression were used for statistical analysis. Associations between objective and subjective orthodontic treatment needs were weak but statistically significant (Rho from 0.20 to 0.50 ; p<0.05). Malocclusion-related quality of life was poorly associated with treatment need. Satisfaction with tooth appearance showed the most frequent statistically significant correlation (Rho from -0.14 to -0.35 ; p<0.05), while importance of aligned teeth for facial appearance and social contacts had the weakest correlation with treatment need. Perception of treatment need was greater in previously treated subjects. Parents’ perception had a low predictive value. The findings of this study show that malocclusion has more impact on emotional well-being than on function or social contacts.
