How often do people visit a dentist? What stops them from going? Who can expect to retain their natural teeth? Do people have problems with dentures? These were just some of the questions addressed in a national household survey of adult dental health. The survey involved an interview about dental experiences and attitudes, and all those who still had some natural teeth were asked if they would be willing to have a dental examination. The examination was designed specifically for the survey and carried out by a team of nearly 70 dentists. The results of both interviews and examinations are presented in this volume.
