Oral Healthcare for Older People: 2020 Vision, January 2012 Check-Up (British Dental Association)

Summary

This British Dental Association (BDA) policy document investigates whether the planning and delivering of dental care can satisfy the oral health needs of the UK’s ageing population. This report examines the latest recommendations on this topic and updates demographic information and predictions. It supplies recommendations for commissioners and social care services to help ensure the oral health needs of elderly patients and citizens are met.

Notable challenges anticipated in the delivery of care for older adults include the large amount of restorative work involved and non-dental complications such as the increasing prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
