Just like all of us, our patients are advancing in age and facing complicated age-related consequences. Food impactions, expanding restorations, temperature sensitivity, xerostomia, grinding, and erosion are just a few of the many issues they will face as they grow older. This course looks at the contributing factors that will be affecting our aging patients and provides an opportunity to discuss their personal, and our professional, dilemmas. We will chew on the facts and spit out potential solutions that will help us all age tastefully.
1) Identify the difference between hyposalivation and xerostomia.
2) Look at why we get it and how to treat it.
3) Recognize changes intraorally (attrition, wear, erosion).
4) Consider the need for SDF with this population.
5) Evaluate in-office and home aides for patients’ home care protocol.
