Importance de la présence de critères d’identification sur les prothèses dentaires amovibles chez la personne âgée dépendante institutionnalisée

Abstract : Background: denture loss for dependent elderly people is an injurious situation for the patient who can often result in food texture change and swallowing disorder. Often, it’s impossible to make new prostheses for those patients. Identification criteria of denture exist with different marking techniques. Objective: to determine the importance of denture loss for dependent institutionalized elderly patient and quantify denture markers as well as marking techniques. Method: a cross-sectional study was conducted from June to December 2021 in the odontology service of Xavier Arnozan Hospital in Pessac (France). Principal clinical data, including age, sex, institutionalized patient or not, type of protheses analysed, marked or not and main reason for consultation. Results: analysis was conducted among 159 patients (of which 39 institutionalized), with 210 protheses analysed. Of 210 dentures, none were marked (0% denture marked). The denture loss rate was 3% (7th main reason for consultation) for non-institutionalized people and 13% (4th main reason for consultation) for institutionalized people. Conclusion: our study highlights the problem of denture loss in the institutionalized elderly and an absence of denture markers. A serious awareness is necessary to try to find a solution to this problem, in particular with denture labelling.
