Poor dental health may predict reduced ability to leave one's house
from Dental Tribune
Researchers in Japan have investigated the association between poor dental health and being housebound in the elderly, and found that having fewer teeth and no dentures were associated with future risk of being homebound, especially in people aged 65–74. The findings may have important implications for interventions that promote dental health and denture use to prevent older people from becoming confined to their homes.
