There is an increasing interest in conceptualizing chronic disease aetiology within a life course framework. This approach analyses the effects of physical and social exposures along the individual's life on chronic disease risk. It provides a more comprehensive approach than traditional risk factor epidemiology as it seeks to understand when and how particular exposures act on later health outcomes. There are many studies linking conditions in adulthood to oral disease and tooth loss. Therefore when assessing the effects of factors operating at different stages of an individuals life on his /her risk of general as well as oral disease one use information from across the whole life course.
