Many of the removable prosthodontic patients we treat are geriatric; compromised health may have an impact upon treatment. The positive health factors should be in homeostasis against negative factors:

Positive Negative

Good general health Poor health

Periodontally stable Interceptive occlusal contacts

(+) Bone factor Periodontal disease

Good occlusion (-) Bone factor

Arch integrity Bad habit patterns

Good nutrition Poor nutrition


Any Medical History Review should include the following:

*Systems

*Medications

*Hospitalizations

*Treatment
