AIM To develop Croatian and Slovenian versions of the 14-item Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) Questionnaire. METHODS The English original version of the OHIP questionnaire was translated into Croatian (OHIP-CRO14) and Slovenian (OHIP-SVN14) language by a forward-backward translation method. The psychometric properties of the OHIP-CRO14 and OHIP-SVN14(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to develop a Croatian version of the Orofacial Esthetic Scale (OES) and to test its psychometric properties. MATERIALS AND METHODS The English version of the OES was translated into Croatian (forward-backward method). The original 11-point scale as well as a 5-point scale (1 = unsatisfactory, 5 = excellent) were used.(More)
Sixty eight consecutive Slovenian patients with craniomandibular disorders (CMD) participated as the study group and another 400 adults from the regional population sample participated as the control group. The aim was to determine the impact of craniomandibular disorders to the self-perceived oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) and to compare the(More)
Previous exploratory analyses suggest that the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) consists of four correlated dimensions and that individual differences in OHIP total scores reflect an underlying higher-order factor. The aim of this report is to corroborate these findings in the Dimensions of Oral Health-Related Quality of Life (DOQ) Project, an(More)
BACKGROUND Except for denture quality, many other factors are related to a patient's satisfaction with complete dentures (CDs). METHODS A total of 222 patients with CDs took a part in this study. A questionnaire divided into 3 parts was completed by both the patients and the dentist, independently. The patients rated their dentures using a scale ranging(More)
BACKGROUND Human bones decrease in density and increase in porosity beginning at about the third decade of life. The objective of this study was to determine whether mandibular bone mineral density (BMD) and some linear radiomorphometric measurements on dental panoramic radiograph (DPR) are correlated with different categories of body mass index (BMI) in(More)
Purpose of this study was to develop a Croatian version of the Oral Health Impact Profile questionnaire (OHIP--CRO49), following the accepted cross-cultural adaptation technique guidelines. The original version was translated by using a forward-backward translation method. The psychometric properties of the OHIP-CRO49 were tested. To test the construct(More)
PURPOSE A desideratum of oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) instruments - such as the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) - is that they accurately reflect the structure of the measured construct(s). With this goal in mind, the Dimensions of Oral Health-Related Quality of Life (DOQ) Project was proposed to investigate the number and nature of OHRQoL(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of patients treated with three different types of mandibular implant overdentures (IOD) after at least 3 years in function. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 122 patients treated with mini implant (50), locator (56), or bar (16) mandibular IODs participated.(More)
PURPOSE To assess the angles between craniofacial planes and the gravity horizontal plane (GHP). MATERIALS AND METHODS The plumb line was hung from the ceiling, the Fox plane (FoxP) was placed in the mouth, and 56 Angle Class I subjects were photographed in a natural head position. FoxP represents the extraoral view of the occlusal plane. RESULTS In(More)
