Oral health is an integral part of general health and is directly related to our quality of life.
With increasing age dental problems are also increasing and require special treatment. The branch of dental science that deals with the oral problems of older persons, including all those suffering of serious health problems, is Gerodontology (Geriatric Dentistry/ Dental Geriatrics).
On this website you will find useful information about obtaining and maintaining good oral health throughout life, and especially after middle age. Detailed instructions for cleaning natural and artificial teeth are provided, as well as tips to protect against caries and periodontal disease. There is also extensive information on the construction of partial and complete dentures and answers to all questions about their use and care.
