Description:
In 1978, the Irish Association for Dental Prosthesis (IADP), an organisation of dental mechanics, submitted a memorandum to the Minister for Health in which they outlined, as they saw it, the position then obtaining in relation to the provision of dental health care in this country, and made suggestions as to how this could be improved. 1.2 In their view, the amount of dental disease in our society requires the dental profession to devote their efforts to prevention and treatment, and time spent on prosthetic work reduced the time spent on prevention and treatment. In addition, they submitted that under the present system and because of the overall shortage of dentists, the cost and quality of dentures were not likely to improve. They indicated that in other countries, notably Canada, the denture problems had been solved by creating a new denture care system known as denturism. Under this, full and removable partial dentures are constructed, altered and repaired directly for the public by denturists specifically trained and educated to perform this service. This, they claimed had led to an improved quality and fit of denture, freed the dentists to concentrate on preventive treatment, and reduced the cost of dentures by 50 per cent.
