Abstract: Introduction: Oral diseases are one of the most common chronic diseases and pose a significant public health problem. Maintaining oral health is quite difficult in the elderly, due to less interest in dental services. Adequate nutrition is a vital factor for the health and well - being of the elderly. Strengthening dental "supervision" / services for the elderly can increase their oral health and, consequently, their quality of life. Goal: The purpose of our study was to conduct a comparative analysis of subjective and objective examination of the oral cavity of the elderly patients to determine the perception of oral complaints and the impact on the quality of life. Methods and Materials: The paper is a prospective study of a pre - selected group of deeply elderly people, which uses the methods of survey, interview and researcher examination (objective examination) and comparative analysis of the results obtained. Results and Conclusion: Based on the obtained results, we came to the following conclusion: Oral pathologies detected at the end of the life of the elderly aged 85 years and older are largely manageable and the provision of adequate sanitation of their oral cavity has the potential to improve the quality of life of this contingent.
