Özet

Background/purpose: The oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) reveals important information about a patient's perceptions in clinical practice, and pain is a critical point when evaluating OHRQoL in clinical practice. The aim of the study was to compare pain patterns by means of the Dental Pain-Screening Questionnaire (DePaQ) and an OHRQoL evaluation between symptomatic irreversible pulpitis and pericoronitis.
