The Golden Age
The older population is especially in need of oral rehabilitation. There are not many other realms in which it is possible to make such an improvement in the quality of life for the Golden Agers as in dental treatments. The years leave their mark on the oral health of the elderly. Naturally, the accumulative load on the mouth, and health problems cause the erosion/destruction of and the loss of teeth.The wrong treatment of these problems will cause the situation to deteriorate, causing serious damage to one’s quality of living.Treating the elderly necessitates even more patience and gentleness than usual.
Professionally, the treatment of the elderly must take additional medical elements intoconsideration, beyond the usual array of considerations, including an in depth investigationof the health condition, and the medication taken on a regular basis. Attention to theseelements leads to the creation of the correct treatment plan for the patient.

MAIN DENTAL PROBLEMS THE ELDERLY SUFFER FROM
As one ages, the joys of life become reduced. Part of the joys of life include trips in Israel and abroad, outings to events, and eating out. The physical limitations brought on by age can cause these enjoyments to be vastly reduced or they simply disappear. It becomes difficult even just to attend family events. When you think about it, you can understand that the pleasures of life become much more basic: sitting with a cup of tea with friends, being in the company of grandchildren, watching a good movie, and no less than the others, eating well and enjoying one’s food.
When it is difficult to chew, the quality of living is damaged,
both directly and indirectly.First of all, the enjoyment of eating itself is marred. It just isn’t fun to eat! When eating remains one of the main pleasures of life, the damage to the quality of life is meaningful.
Difficulty in chewing causes additional discomfort. The impaired ability to chew incurs swallowing too large pieces of food, which burdens the stomach and causes difficulties in the bowel movements. The elderly often have a difficult time contending with different illnesses as it is, and the addition of this burden is a meaningful one.
