In just two generations, life expectancies have increased 20 years. With that, you as a clinician are now faced with far more dentulous dentistry in the older population subset. These patients provide wonderful opportunities for you to help, as they present with daily restorative challenges that are entirely different than those of younger patients. Why? Because aging oral issues are, in fact, the perfect recipe for geriatric caries. The reasons for this are many, including large embrasures (food traps), aged dental margins, poor diets, decreased saliva, and decreased dexterity for optimal prevention. This CE webinar will present clear approaches for you to treat these patients. It will also highlight the latest restorative materials and techniques to best help in these clinical situations.
