Abstract

The objective of this study is the assessment of the psychological status and of the personality type of patients reporting dento-maxillary anomalies using the BSI-53 (brief symptom inventory) psychological test and the BFI (big five inventory) personality test. Methods: The BSI-53 and BFI tests were administered to 85 patients who were grouped in 5 degrees of severity of anomalies according to KIG. The personality and psychological status were analyzed and compared across groups. Results: a relevant statistic correlation was demonstrated between the “agreeable” personality type and the degree of severity of the dento-maxillary anomaly. The people who visit the orthodontics cabinet show high degrees of somatization and the BI-53 scores are significantly correlated with the BFI results.Conclusions: statistic differences were identified regarding the psychological status and the personality of patients with moderate dento-maxillary anomalies compared to those with severe anomalies, without pinpointing to a statistic difference between the socio-demographic characteristics of the subjects.
