Complete dentures are not always functioning well in replacing teeth. Mastication, esthetics and phonetic has been
known to affect the quality of life. This study aims to determine the quality of life of elderly who use the full denture.
Descriptive analytic research with cross sectional study design was conducted in Makassar on May-June 2014. The
sample was obtained by stratified random sampling, by conducting interviews based on OHIP-14 questionnaires, door
to door on 162 elderly respondents. The results show that the highest score of the seven dimensions of OHIP-14 is on the
dimensions of physical disability, and the lower the score obtained, the better the quality of life. This research obtained
a mean score of 50.58, so it was concluded that the quality of life of the elderly in Makassar which uses the full denture
was categorized as good.
