Objective. The structure, prevalence and localization of diseases of the oral mucosa in a population older than working age in a socially-organized team were studied. Methods. A continuous dental examination was conducted, according to the recommendations of experts from WHO (1997), elderly and older persons who were permanently residing in the social service institution of Khabarovsk. Results. Diseases of the oral mucosa, including associated pathology, were diagnosed in 47.5 % of the examined and 2.4 more common in women than in men. The stomatitis of various genesis (18.8 % of observations), leukoplakia (13.1 % of observations), candidiasis (15.6 % of observations), red flat lichen (0.8 % of observations) were diagnosed. ‘Other diseases’ (fibromatosis, hemangioma, erythroplasty) were found in 12.3 % of patients. Conclusions. Proceeding from the needs of the examined society in preserving the quality of life and functioning of the dentoalveolar system, we consider it expedient to form a holistic approach that includes measures for improvement and educational propaganda, as well as regular screening and timely treatment of general and dental diseases, taking into account the age-sex mucological characteristics of dental status.
