Abstract

Gerodontology: An Interdisciplinary Approach

The aim of this review is to throw light on the interrelationship between periodontics, restorative dentistry and prosthodontics in geriatric population. Increased life expectancy along with appropriate dental treatment in the younger ages leads to retention of more number of teeth in the advanced ages. To maintain these teeth disease free and in function in the older individuals is a multi-faceted challenge. This article describes the various restorative and prosthodontic treatment modalities that are commonly used in the dental rehabilitation of geriatric patients and their relationship with the periodontium and gingival health.
