Lecture
Tooth Loss, How to Handle It? A Public Health Perspective
The shortened dental arch concept is a treatment strategy for reduced dentitions that aims to preserve the anterior teeth and premolars without complex and costly restorative treatment of molars and without extending shortened dental arches with distal-extension removable dental prostheses. The shortened dental arch concept is a potentially cost-effective approach in the management of reduced dentitions This concept is globally accepted, but not widely practiced. A body of mainly circumstantial evidence shows that shortened dental arches may provide a stable and functional dentition with respect to chewing ability, aesthetics and oral comfort.
