Medico-economical Evaluation on Buccodental Teleexpertise in Nursing Home

Brief description of study

Oral care in medical and social institutions is a real public health problem. The impact of poor oral health on the general state of residents but also on their overall quality of life is significant.

The development of a precise regulatory framework for telemedicine in France aims to transform experiments into sustainable medical activities. Odontology often set aside in this reflection, must be reintegrated. The use of tele-expertise for the oral care of nursing home residents should make it possible to replace oral health in medico-social institutions. The investigators will assess in a cluster randomized controlled study whether the buccodental telemedicine has a viable economic model and a significant impact on the overall health of facility for dependent elderly persons residents.

The medico-economic impact of the buccodental telexpertise is fundamental for the development of this innovative activity.
