Frail older people who wear complete dentures may have denture-related complaints which are more pronounced due to their somatic, psychological and/or social problems. On the other hand, it often happens that serious complaints are not or cannot be expressed. In those cases, members of the individual’s social network or care providers may request treatment. According to the authors’ experience, managing technical denture disorders by carrying out standard treatments or inserting oral implants is not always successful. Basic principles of providing oral healthcare to frail older people are: restraint in carrying out treatments, avoiding standard treatments, taking into consideration the limited adaptability of older people, continuous awareness of one’s own functioning in the decision-making process, and paying attention to the role of family members, voluntary and professional care providers, and physicians.
