Keywords : Braces Fuctional Questionnaire;
Objective: To evaluate patients and parents perception of removable functional, fixed functional, and fixed mechanotherapy appliances (braces) and to compare their impacts on anxiety and discomfort during treatment in different age groups and genders. Method: Information was obtained through a questionnaire that included items believed to be consistent with compliance with orthodontics. A survey was used to measure the experiences of patients and family. Three groups were formed: functional removable (RF), functional fixed (FF) and fixed mechanotherapy (braces). For the patients and their families, two different questionnaires were used that included the necessary context. Data analysis was carried out using Chi-square, Mann-Whitney U, and Kruskal-Wallis tests. Results: It took less time for patients to adjust to the Fixed functional system. Patients in the removable group found feeding difficulties. Adolescents with a removable appliance who had undergone effective orthodontic treatment had difficulty controlling their saliva. The expectations of patients and parents were found to be compatible with one another. Conclusion: Adolescents with set equipment who had undergone effective orthodontic treatment had more difficulties with their daily lives. Orthodontists should be mindful of this effect of successful orthodontic treatment and should inspire patients on a regular basis by reminding them of the changes to be made by repairing malocclusion.
