Although in the last decade, preventive success strategies have been implemented to decrease the risk of caries, special needs, compromised, and elderly patients have limitations when it comes to maintaining a good oral health, with caries and periodontal diseases being highly prevalent in this population. Furthermore, special diets, medications, and oral motor habits can favor the development of dental problems for these patients.
Special needs or geriatric patients with extensive dental involvement tend to experience dental anxiety and can often be less cooperative due to physical limitations, mental disabilities or behavioral management problems, which make conventional dental treatment or oral examinations extremely difficult.
The geriatric or elderly patient is considered a frail patient; any type of treatment could lead to a medical or psychological collapse. During dental intervention, it is essential to maintain balance and, in this way, provide an adequate quality of life. Therefore, a new bioethical focus should be introduced into basic and preventive programs.
This Special Issue will focus on oral health for special needs, compromised, and elderly patients. Full papers of original articles, short communications, and review articles are all welcomed.
