Abstract: 

Statement of problem: Denture acceptance as a complex process is dependent not only on ridge morphology, theoretical and practical skills of dentist, but on many psychologic factors which need to be considered seriously.
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between complete denture satisfaction and expectation with patient’s self-esteem and self-concept.
Materials and method: This descriptive-analytical study was undertaken on 52 patients (28 male and 24 female) referred to the prosthodontic department of Khorasgan Azad University. The mean age was 53.4 with the range of 35-70 years. The personality variables were measured using two standard psychological tests (Rosenberg and California tests). Before and after full denture delivery, patients completed the denture expectation questionnaires. After using new dentures for 3 months, the patients’ satisfaction was evaluated by related questionnaires. T-student, T-paired and Pearson coefficient tests were used for data analysis.
Results: There was no significant relationship between expectation and self-concept likewise between self-esteem and satisfaction (p= 0.42, 0.18). A moderate relationship was found between self-esteem and expectation (p=0.05), while a significant relationship was obtained between self-concept and satisfaction (p= 0.01).
Conclusion: According to this study, it was revealed that complete denture treatment did not have any significant effect on patients’ personality variables, but there was a significant relation between patients’ self-esteem and complete denture satisfaction. Also patients with high self-esteem scores showed better expectations with their dentures.
