Aim: The study deals with a preliminary analysis that compares quality of life of a randomized sample of patients with total or partial edentulism rehabilitated through conventional implantology or computer-assisted implantology. Methods: The first group was treated with conventional implantology, while the second group was treated with NobelGuide™ computer-assisted implantology. every patient has filled up a questionnaire about quality of life in presurgical period (sf-361), in postsurgical period (sf-361; tiq2) and about the gratification after prosthetic treatment. the questionnaire has evaluated physical, general and psycho-emotive health parameter. Results: sf-36 has demonstrated an improvement in quality of life after computer-assisted surgery. tiq has revealed that patients symptoms in post-surgical week were inferior in quality and in quantity in NobelGuide™ technique. gratification questionnaire has demonstrated that quality of life improvement matches patient full satisfaction after the treatment. Conclusion: NobelGuide™ protocol improves physical health after implantology with positive reflections on psycho-emotive health. furthermore prefabricated temporary prostheses reduces treatment time and patient discomfort.

Abstract

Aim: The study deals with a preliminary analysis that compares quality of life of a randomized sample of patients with total or partial edentulism rehabilitated through conventional implantology or computer-assisted implantology. Methods: The first group was treated with conventional implantology, while the second group was treated with NobelGuide™ computer-assisted implantology. every patient has filled up a questionnaire about quality of life in presurgical period (sf-361), in postsurgical period (sf-361; tiq2) and about the gratification after prosthetic treatment. the questionnaire has evaluated physical, general and psycho-emotive health parameter. Results: sf-36 has demonstrated an improvement in quality of life after computer-assisted surgery. tiq has revealed that patients symptoms in post-surgical week were inferior in quality and in quantity in NobelGuide™ technique. gratification questionnaire has demonstrated that quality of life improvement matches patient full satisfaction after the treatment. Conclusion: NobelGuide™ protocol improves physical health after implantology with positive reflections on psycho-emotive health. furthermore prefabricated temporary prostheses reduces treatment time and patient discomfort.
