Li, Na / Otomaru, Takafumi / Said, Mohamed Moustafa / Kanazaki, Ayako / Yeerken, Yesiboli / Taniguchi, Hisashi
Purpose: To investigate factors affecting sleep quality in maxillectomy patients after prosthetic rehabilitation and to determine the association between defect status and sleep quality.
Materials and Methods: A total of 57 patients participated in this study. Sleep quality, general health, and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) were evaluated.
Results: Of the total sample, 89% had poor sleep quality. Early morning awakening and daytime sleepiness were the most common complaints.
Conclusion: Defect status and the extent of neck dissection could affect sleep quality in these patients. Improvement of OHRQoL in patients with dentomaxillary prostheses may help improve sleep.
