Table 1 Survey questions

From: A preliminary report on dental implant condition among dependent elderly based on the survey among Japanese dental practitioners

1. Do you offer implant treatment?
2. Do you give a “card/pocket notebook” to patients for whom implant treatment has been completed?
3. Among the patients who received implant treatment at your clinic, are there any patients who were admitted to the hospital or became bedridden at home?
4. Have you been consulted by your implant patients or their families about oral health management when the patients were admitted to the hospital or became bedridden?
5. If you are informed by one of your implant patients that s/he cannot visit your clinic due to becoming bedridden, how do you address this?
6. Please provide the number of institutions and patients by the category of institutions you visit for home-visit dental care.
 Number of institutions
 Total number of patients who receive your home-visit dental care
 Of the above patients, the total number of patients who are unable to perform oral self-care
 Total number of patients who have implants among those who receive your home-visit dental care
 Of the above patients who have implants, the total number of patients who are unable to perform oral self-care
7. How do you identify the presence of implants in patients receiving your home-visit dental care?
8. Would it be helpful if institutionalized or homebound older adults have an implant card/pocket notebook (something like the Prescription Pocket Notebook) or treatment history/information?
