By Carl Driscoll, D.M.D.
Estimates indicate that edentulism has declined by 10 percent every decade and that only ninety percent of edentulous adults obtain and wear complete dentures. However, this ten percent decline will be offset by 79% increase in the adult population older than 55 years of age. Clinical implications are twofold: practicing dentists will find that a sizable minority of patients will continue to need complete denture services and if training in complete denture prostheses is eliminated from the dental education, millions of patients will be forced to seek denture services from alternative providers……denturists!
