Something to Chew On: The Effects of Aging on Oral Health

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. We will chew on the facts and spit out potential solutions that will help us all age tastefully.

Jump With Me! Take That Step to Treating the Entire Patient, Not Just the Oral Cavity We Are Used To!

We pride ourselves that we are experts in our field. We are trained to recognize abnormalities, provide patients’ education, teach prevention techniques, screen for early detection, and provide prompt treatment. This all sounds good intra-orally, but what happens when we see a mole on a patient’s face, lip, eye or skin that keeps getting bigger every time we see them? Do you bring it to their attention? Have you ever taken a photo with their cell phone so they can watch it? Between two and three million non-melanoma skin cancers and 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occur globally each year. This course will make you comfortable understanding the difference of “normal” and what could be “abnormal.” Do you see discuss the dangers of the tanning bed to those goddesses? What is UVA and UVB radiation really? What number of sunscreen is absolutely necessary? By the end of this course you will have the knowledge to quite possibly save a life!
