Abstract : Many elderly edentulous patients with considerably resorbed mandibular alveolar bone have problems with the retention and stability of their mandibular complete dentures resulting in poor oral health related quality of life. The study was carried out to evaluate oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) after rehabilitation with one-implant retained mandibular complete overdenture in elderly patients. Thirty elderly mandibular edentulous patients (age 65-93 years old) were recruited and baseline OHRQoL was assessed by OHI-14 questionnaires. Single one-body implant (Dentium, Korea) was surgically placed at the midline of mandible and one month after surgery, mandibular complete overdenture retained by rubber O-ring attachment on the implant was prescribed. Post-treatment OHRQoL was assessed again and patient satisfaction was also determined by patient evaluation questionnaire. All patients reported excellent satisfaction on the prescribed treatment. There was highly significant difference between baseline OHRQoL and after rehabilitation OHRQoL (p<0.001). In conclusion, single implant retained mandibular complete overdenture treatment dramatically improves the oral health related quality of life for elderly edentulous patients and it is suggested for wider application in the community.
