The International and American Associations for Dental Research have published a paper titled "Projections of U.S. Edentulism Prevalence Following Five Decades of Decline." This study follows edentulism over the last hundred years and highlights the numbers of people losing teeth and requiring dentures. It is published in the OnlineFirst portion of the IADR/AADR Journal of Dental Research. The researchers of this study investigated population trends in edentulism among U.S. adults at least 15 years of age by creating time-series data from five national cross-sectional health surveys.
