Sažetak

Within the framework o f a multinational study to determine the
gerostomatological treatment need a number of social criteria was
examined concerning their influence on oral health. Additionally the
oral health status o f institutionalized elderly people was compared
with that of non-institutionalised elderly people. The results showed
that urban residents generally enjoy better oral health than rural residents. Differences were shown to exist for different occupations. A
lower level of professional qualification was related most of the time to a higher treatment need. Oral health among nursing home residents was generally worse than among the people living independently. Consequently, there was a higher treatment need for the nursing home residents.
