This book examines the growing area of geriatric dentistry, covering the epidemiology of oral diseases in the elderly to maintenance care. The various prosthodontic treatment modalities and their indications are discussed -- from the fabrication of removable prostheses to implant therapy -- with diagnosis and treatment based on scientific evidence. Treatment rationale is presented in light of recent studies linkingoral to general health and with particular consideration given to the patient's individual set of circumstances. Clinicians and dental students will find it valuable in decision making and treatment planning.
