Résumé :

Cited from : PETERSEN, Poul Erik. The world oral health report 2003 : continuous improvement of oral health in the 21st century, the approach of the WHO global oral health programme [Online].

In many developing countries, access to oral health services is limited and teeth are often left untreated or are extracted because of pain or discomfort. Throughout the world, losing teeth is still seen by many people as a natural consequence of ageing. While in some industrialized countries there has been a positive trend of reduction in tooth loss among adults in recent years, the proportion of edentulous adults aged 65 years and older is still high in some countries (Table 1).
