Abstract :

Background: Orthodontic treatments have developed rapidly on the last decade even though; the sophisticated treatment has been limited by patient’s behavior. Orthodontist should acknowledge that the success of treatment not only depends on the knowledge and skill of the operator, but on the patient’s behavior as well, which is very critical to overcome the oral habit, including anterior tongue thrust swallow (ATTS). Purpose: Patient’s cooperation is the key factor to set prognosis of oral habit correction and have to be proven through analysis of questioners. Methods: Patient cooperation scale (PCS) was made for this research involving 68 orthodontic patients from Faculty of Dentistry Indonesia University and LADOKGI as respondents. Patients were in retention period but still had the bad habit ATTS and should be corrected to prevent relapse of malocclusion. PCS assessment was based on data sets of: Patient Awareness of ATTS (PAw), patient acceptance to receive treatment (PAc), and Patient Comfortable for using appliances (PC). Result: Cronbach coefficients alpha of 0.9668 shows; PCS is reliable, so that it can be used for this research. The result of t test shows PCS has a significant relation with the length of successful treatment (p=0). Alpha Cronbach from PAw, PAc, and PD data sets analysis were 0.9512, 0.9299, and 0.9643, means PCS assessment can be based on data sets of PAw, PAc, and PD. Conclusion: This showed that the factors that contribute to the achievement of ATTS treatment through behavior modification were willingness, comfortable, and awareness.
