抄録

Removable dentures had great effects on general health and quality of life in the elderly. On the other hand, denture plaque has been reported to cause various diseases, not only stomatitis but also aspiration pneumonia.<BR>The purpose of this study was to determine the actual status of denture plaque in the elderly and to point out the problem in the future.<BR>The results were as follows:<BR>1. About half of the independent elderly wore their dentures continuously night and day and cleaned their dentures by brush only.<BR>2. Dependent elderly had a significantly larger amount of <I>C. albicans</I> on the fitting surface of dentures than independent elderly. Among dependent elderly, denture wearers had significantly larger amount of <I>C. albicans</I> on the palatal mucosa than non-denture wearers.<BR>3. Most of the staff in a nursing home felt that their knowledge of oral and denture hygiene was insufficient and had trouble with denture cleaning.<BR>From these results, it was concluded that it was necessary to show the actual status of denture hygiene, necessity of denture cleaning and the importance of oral care for the elderly not only to providers of elderly care but also all of the people.
