A comparison of patients requiring orthognathic treatment who subsequently refused or accepted surgery

Kindelan/Sheard/Nashed

Forty-four patients who required combined orthodontic-surgical procedures were psychologically assessed in relation to stress, self-esteem, introspectiveness, and body satisfaction. Thirty patients accepted the surgical procedures, and 14 refused surgery. These two groups of patients were compared with respect to their psychologic profiles; statistical analysis detected no significant differences.
