N – number of subjects; M – male; F – female; T0 – observation before prosthesis (3–4 months’ post maxillectomy); T1 – observation at 2 weeks after delivery of respective prosthesis; T2 – observation at 6 months; T3 – observation at 12 months; symbol – indicates between.
Post hoc tests – pairwise comparison [k-(k-1)/2=6 comparisons]; test used – independent-sample ‘t’ test repeatedly for unequal variance; after Bonferroni’s correction (p value/n) the value for p to be significant is 0.0083. All significant values denoted as * are significant at the p value of 0.0083.
Levels of significance: NS (not significant)=P≤0.05; * Significant=P≤0.05; ** Very significant=P≤0.01; *** Highly significant=P≤0.001.
