Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between personality type and denture satisfaction of totally and partially edentulous patients. Materials and Methods: Two hundred thirty-nine patients (107 women and 132 men) aged 31 to 78 years (mean, 51.87) using removable dentures (165 maxillary and mandibular partial, 51 maxillary and mandibular complete, and 23 maxillary complete and mandibular partial) were asked to fill out a questionnaire on their satisfaction with their dentures with regard to esthetics, speaking ability, and masticatory function. Personality types were evaluated using both the responses to this questionnaire and the Type A Behavior Pattern Test. Chi-square test and logistic regression analysis were used to compare the denture satisfaction scores of the groups (Type A, Type B, and Type AB). The level of statistical significance was set at P = .05. Results: Denture satisfaction of the patients with regard to esthetics, speaking ability, and masticatory function was affected by personality type. Statistically significant differences were found between Type A and types B and AB, as well as between types B and AB. Conclusion: The personality type of the patients had an effect on their satisfaction with dentures. The lowest denture satisfaction values were observed in the Type A patients.
