The Older Dental Patient - Who Cares?


The Older Dental Patient - Who Cares?

P H Hellyer. Br Dent J.


People in the United Kingdom are living for longer and taking their natural dentitions with them into old age. If the dental profession as a whole is to be prepared to support the care of older people, a clear understanding of what it is to be old will be needed.

This paper suggests that there may be more basic needs to be addressed.
