Course Description

Aims

To understand the dental and systemic factors that are more prevalent in older adults and how these may impact on dental care.

Learning content 

Join Wendy Turner in this webinar sponsored by Oral-B. As people are living longer and keeping more teeth for longer, there is a particular need to think both about the dental and systemic factors that are more prevalent in older adults and how these may impact on dental care. Periodontal disease, root caries, dry mouth, dentine hypersensitivity and tooth surface loss are amongst the common oral problems affecting older adults. This webinar will take a look at common problems focusing on the identification, risk management, treatment approaches and how these can be managed to optimise patient care. 

Objectives

To familiarise the learner with:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Root caries
  • Dry mouth
  • Dentine hypersensitivity
  • Tooth surface loss
  • How these conditions can be managed to optimise patient care
