Synopsis:

Enables readers to understand practical solutions to reduce oral disease and improve oral health in a growing aging population

Oral Health for an Ageing Population offers global evidence and practical solutions to enable dental clinicians and policymakers implement effective policies and practices compatible with local needs and resources. The text clearly interprets evidence into knowledge, knowledge into policy, and policy into practice in the context of dental and general health care provision, offering international perspectives and specific examples of implemented global policies.

Specific sample topics covered in Oral Health for an Ageing Population include:

  • Burden of global aging and how to achieve oral health among the elderly (including detailed recommendations for integrated clinical and community initiatives)
  • Sustainable development goals, common risk factor approach, life course approach, non-communicable diseases, and frailty prevention
  • Implementing effective health policy at the international and national level and improving attitudes and awareness among the general public regarding oral health
  • Learning from the experience of Japan, the UK, and other countries, plus recommendations for future research, policy, and practice

Written by a leading expert in dental geriatrics, Oral Health for an Ageing Population is based on decades of experience dealing with oral health and general health issues arising in an aging society. It provides extensive reviews of the relevant empirical evidence and practical implementation proposals for dentists, dental hygienists, other healthcare professionals, and policymakers.
