Abstract

There has been a growing recognition of the need to obtain information about the oral health in India. The aim of this report was to provide descriptive information about the oral health among the elderly population.

The three groups consisted of 75 patients each with age groups of 60–65 years, 66–70 years and 71 and above, respectively and the association of age, medical status, recent use of dental services, habits, dentures with that of oral mucosal disorders were assessed.
