In recent decades, older adults have been using dental services more and more. For example, in National Health Interview Surveys, only 16.2% of adults over the age of 65 in 1957 reported having a dental visit during the past year while in 2002, 54% said they did. In 2004, 16 million older patients were reported to have received about 74 million dental procedures overall. This drastic change is also reflected in changing dental expenditures among older patients.
