Supporting data for “Association of masticatory performance and oral conditions of older adults in Hong Kong”
The Hong Kong and the world population is rapidly ageing. Healthy ageing, defined as the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables well-being in older age, has attracted more and more attention from every sector of society. Oral health condition, especially masticatory function is one of the most important aspects of general health during ageing of old adults. This thesis consists of two systematic reviews, a study to develop a questionnaire-based measurement tool, and a cross-sectional study, which are all related to the masticatory performance of older adults.
