Effect of periodontal surgery on oral health-related quality of life in patients who have completed initial periodontal therapy
Patient-centered assessments are particularly important in periodontal treatment in which their concerns may differ from the traditional clinical endpoints. However, information is limited regarding the influence of periodontal surgery on patients’ quality of life (QoL). The aim of the present study was to investigate the impact of surgical periodontal therapy on the oral health-related QoL of patients who have received initial periodontal therapy.
