AbstractThe aim of this study was to examine the effect of dentofacial deformity on quality of life (QOL) as assessed by generic health, generic oral health and condition-specific approaches. A case-control study was performed involving 154 subjects: 76 with dentofacial deformity (non-cleft) and 76 without dentofacial deformity. Generic health-related QOL was assessed employing the 36-item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), generic oral health-related QOL was assessed by the 14-item short form Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP-14) and condition-specific QOL was assessed by the 22-item Orthognathic Quality of Life Questionnaire (OQLQ). No significant difference in SF-36 scores between case and control groups was observed (P > 0.05). There were significant differences in overall OHIP-14 scores (P < 0.001) and overall OQLQ scores (P < 0.001) between case and control groups. The results suggest that dentofacial deformity affects individuals in many aspects of their lives, and that generic oral health and condition-specific approaches to assessing QOL are able to discriminate patients with dentofacial deformities from those without, and thus have value in determining the impact of dentofacial deformities on QOL. © 2007 International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
