Abstract
Perfect health is a prize that has been the goal of mankind throughout all ages. It must be understood that there can be no separation between good bodily health and good dental health. A diseased body often produces a diseased mouth & a diseased mouth can often lead to a diseased body. Dentistry for elderly must be practiced with increased awareness of the biologic factors since the adaptive mechanism and tissue regenerative potentials for the elderly patients are usually significantly lowered. So the elderly require a different approach, modified treatment planning and knowledge of how the tissue changes associated with senescence affect oral health services. In the present review article a brief overview is presented about the Geriatric management in edentulous patients, its importance and clinical significance.
