Most Americans now enter the senior years with natural dentitions. However,
aging causes changes in the oral cavity which have a direct impact on restorative
dentistry. Age-related changes to pulpal tissues and dentin reduce bonding.
Attrition, abrasion, erosion and other tooth wear phenomenon affect restorative
contours, material longevity and occlusal harmony. Xerostomia increases caries
risk, especially root caries, and must be properly addressed to achieve long-lasting
results. Learn practical skills and techniques to use immediately in the
booming senior market.
