|Recently, clinical evidence indicates that dental treatment can be used to treat systemic conditions. This report was designed to evaluate the efficacy of dental treatment in terms of Activity of Daily Living (ADL) for impaired elderly people. 32 bedridden individuals participated in this study. 18 participants received removable dentures while 14 didn’t. Of the 18 participants who wore dentures, over 50% improved; 38.9% significantly improved while 16.7% moderately improved. Those in the no-dentures control group (14 patients) reported no improvement. These results support the notion that methods typically used in clinical dentistry may improve ADL for those with systemic conditions like bedridding.|
