Abstract
Adequate oral health is an essential part of general health in all age groups, but in particular in older age groups. Good oral health is a prerequisite to physical, mental and social wellbeing and quality of life. Adequate and accessible oral health service is a fundamental right of “all” vulnerable older people living in a community. This doctoral thesis demonstrates inadequate oral health and oral health care delivery in institutionalised older people and concerns the development and application of an oral health care model for older people in nursing homes emphasizing the integration of oral health care into daily care.
