Just like all of us, our patients are advancing in age and are facing some 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.
