Abstract

Patients require orthodontics treatment could come with many reasons such as aesthetic, functional or psychological factors. Some aesthetic reasons are permitted to be treated if it is reasonable and do not against the human norms. To have a normal smile corrected from a crowded or spaced tooth are two examples where orthodontics treatment with braces are permitted. The treatment for dental malocclusion usually will require orthodontic fixed appliances (braces) and counseling as part of the protocol. This study was done to assess the effect of dental malocclusion and fixed appliances to patients' well-being and the psychosocial impact. The result of this study shows that dental malocclusion has direct negative impact on patient self-esteem and psychosocial. Patients with dental malocclusion tend to have lower self-esteem, reduced confident level and negative self-image.
