Our objective was to determine impact of fixed orthodontic appliance therapy on daily performances of school children during the first 6 months of treatment. A sample of 120 children seeking orthodontic treatment between the age group 10 -18 years was selected. All the subjects were given OIDP questionnaire to assess the status 6 months after the beginning of treatment. In the study group 98.3 % of the children had one or more oral impact on their daily life during the 6 month study period. Impacts on Eating were the most prevalent (72.5%) then followed by Cleaning teeth (56.7%), Emotion (46.7%), Smiling (43.3%), Speaking (35%), Contact with people (29.2%), while Studying (25.8%) and Relaxing (14.2%). There was no statistically significant correlation between the age and sex of the subject and impact of orthodontic treatment on daily performance. There is a definitive impact on daily performances during the first 6 months of orthodontic treatment. Patient’s daily performances during the treatment are not significantly correlated with age or gender.
