Study of psychosocial aspects of adult orthodontic treatment


A semistandardized questionnaire was administered to adult orthodontic patients to gain insight into their motives for seeking treatment and their experience during treatment. The data collected from 60 patients aged 18 to 52 years were used for descriptive statistics and calculation of correlations. The results indicate that apart from objective and immediately comprehensible reasons for certain behavioral patterns, ideas influencing emotional life may have an important effect on attitudes toward treatment. The results may be useful for both initial consultation and patient management and guidance during treatment.
