Just like all of us, our patients are advancing in age and are facing some complicated age-related consequences. And the pandemic is not making it any easier. 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 abbreviated virtual course looks at the contributing factors that will be affecting our aging patients and provides an opportunity to discuss reasonable options. We will chew on the facts and spit out potential solutions that will help us all age tastefully.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • How to utilize tele-dentistry for these patients
  • Differentiate between hyposalivation and xerostomia 
  • Evaluate homecare options to consider in this population
