Sažetak

In the framework o f a multinational study the oral health status and treatment need of 19.845 subjects in age groups 55-64, 65-74 and >74 years from Austria, Byelorussia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic were determined. The oral health status of the adult populations of all countries was characterized by a high rate of tooth loss and edentulism. Age-related continuos deterioration of the oral situation is evident. The prevalence of caries for all age groups and countries was high and was characterized by a high M- -component. 90% of all dentate subjects had periodontal disease. In order to improve the oral health status in older populations, age - related concepts o f prevention for the reduction o f caries and peridontal disease, as well as tooth-preserving treatment strategies for lifelong preservation of natural teeth, are indispensable.
