Restorative Challenges in Seniors

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.
