Abstract

The purpose of the study was to verify the significance of prosthodontic treatment for the elderly patients by our university's dental treatment system at home. Thirty-four patients whose dental practice was based on removable prosthodontic treatment and performed by the staff of our department were given questionnaires on satisfaction with the treatment and denture insertion. The results were as follows:<BR>1. Seventy percent of the patients were in their seventies and eighties and almost half of them were edentulous.<BR>2. ADL scores of the patients were low and most patients needed care.<BR>3. The prevalence of cerebrovascular disease was fifty-six percent in the patients.<BR>4. Ninety-four percent of the chief complaints about dental satisfaction of the patients was masticatory disturbance due to wearing uncomfortable dentures.<BR>5. Forty-seven percent of the patients needed to have their dentures replaced.<BR>6. Almost all patients answered that they were satisfied with the prosthodontic treatments offered at home.<BR>From the results of this study, removable prosthodontic treatment is significant not only for the restoration of stomatognathic function and appearance but also for the improvement of quality of life for the home bound elderly.
