The planning of dental and prosthetic treatment for the elderly requires knowledge of the patient’s oral and general health status as well as social orientation. As for most people, loss of teeth is associated with reduced quality of life. Thus, it must be of primary importance to prevent oral diseases leading to edentulism. However, due to medical, economic and social reasons, a conventional approach may not always be optimal. Scientific investigations and clinical experience confirm that treatment with implant-supported prosthesis is equally successful among the old as among younger patients. Good esthetics, chewing comfort and a minimum of future problems can be obtained by a treatment strategy based on timely intervention with implant-supported prosthesis.
