Sociodemographic determinants of edentulism in the elderly population: A systematic review and meta‐analysis

Abstract: Objective To provide a systematic review on the demographic and socioeconomic factors associated with edentulism among older persons. Background Edentulism (complete loss of the natural teeth) is one of the main problems affecting the oral health of the elderly individuals. Many unfavourable socioeconomic factors are considered important predictors of edentulism. Materials and methods This review was performed according to the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta‐analyses (PRISMA). The sea… Show more

“…Our findings are consistent with those of previous studies to have identified age and socioeconomic conditions as risk factors for tooth loss [11,12,28]. Aging populations have accumulated oral and non-communicable health conditions, and so remain susceptible to ongoing tooth loss.…”

“…Depending on its severity, it can significantly impact the ability to chew, speak, socialize, and overall general health [2,3,23]. While previous research has identified the determinants of tooth loss, most of this literature examined only edentulism and did not examine incremental tooth loss, which is a far more prevalent oral state [11]. Moreover, those studies were mostly based on cross-sectional data or examined a few variables using classical statistical modeling rather than predictive modeling [11,12,24].…”

These findings are in accordance with a recent systematic that concluded that lower levels of education and poor income were meaningful factors associated with edentulism among elderly people [9].…”
