Abstract

How oral health conditions influence masticatory function and health in general was reviewed. The relation of cause and effect, which the number of remaining teeth is the most contributing factor to masticatory function, has been established by many researchers. Regarding the relationship between oral health and health in general, however, scientific information is still limited. Some reports suggested that the elderly with poor oral health have high risk for physical and/or mental health problems. Another report was also found that professional care in house calls by dentists made general health of homebound patients improve. On the other hand, leading oral epidemiologists are investigating the relationship between periodontal disease and heart disease or osteoporosis by the same means. For future research, large-scale interdisciplinary cohort studies should be necessary to clarify these relations. As for oral health, there is no doubt about the importance of preventing dental caries and periodontal diseases, which are considered the main causes of tooth loss.
