Abstract

Maintaining lifelong oral health contributes to a good quality of life and well-being. Globalization, urbanization and changing social norms, and technological developments are influencing health behaviours. Oral health must be integrated into a healthy life style that spans all stages of life. The purpose of this forum is to address the epidemiologic data regarding the two most common oral diseases and to discuss an approach that is based on early diagnosis, risk assessment, oral health promotion, disease prevention, and intervention directed at all stages of life to maintain good oral health and optimal quality of life. The goal of reaching the age of 65 years and beyond with a full set of teeth is possible if preventive measures and good oral healthcare are available and utilized.
