The objective of the research was to explore the relationship between different psychological types of patients with an edentulous mandible and their attitudes toward postoperative recommendations and prescriptions after early implant loading treatment.

Materials and Methods. The study was conducted at the Dentistry Center (University Clinic, Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University), November 2019 - March 2020. Study group consisted of 28 individuals with an edentulous mandible. Patients were divided into subgroups (philosophical, exacting-mind, indifferent, and hysterical) based on their mental characteristics. Surveys about complaints, compliance with postoperative recommendations and prescriptions were performed on the 2nd, 4th, 8-10th and 12-14th days after surgical treatment.

Results. Clinical evaluation data, patients’ complaints, and compliance with the postoperative treatment protocol after early implant loading treatment were analyzed. The degree of compliance to prescribed recommendations in patients with different psychological types were evaluated and discussed.

Conclusions. According to the results within the limitations of this study, it can be concluded that compliance with postoperative recommendations and prescriptions is highly dependent on the patient’ psychological type.
