Objectives
To explore the use of dental services in the population aged 15 years and above; to identify which proportion of the population who have lost some teeth, how many are wearing dentures and who made those dentures; to describe and analyse the attitudes in the population towards oral health and disease on the background of selected socio-demographic variables and the respondents' assessment of their own oral conditions and their previous dental care experiences; to analyse longitudinal trends in the above relationships on the basis of comparable investigations in 1975, 1980, 1985 and 1990.
