The Greatest Good for Aging Patients

March 19, 2021

With age comes wisdom, and unfortunately, so does additional oral health complications!  Patients are living longer and in fact, adding almost 20 years to their longevity since the 1950’s.  With that, they are becoming more at high risk for caries, periodontal disease, and have decades of old dentistry in their mouths.  This course will be presented by three leading experts offering customizable treatments for this generation.

Maintaining Oral Health Isn’t That Difficult
Angie Stone, RDH, BS 
As patients age, their abilities and needs to change. It is imperative dental providers understand how to assist patients with remaining dentally healthy during this phase of life.

Methods and Materials Options for the Aging Dental Patient

Caries has not been vanquished as once predicted! Today our elderly population faces increasing risks from dry-mouth causing medications and the abundance of sugar proliferating the “western diet”. This course is intended to be a thought-provoking discussion on how we, as dental providers, can help our patients through the unique challenges facing each of us as we age. Specific clinical tips and suggestions will be included.
