Webinar: Getting Long in the Tooth

Webinar: Getting Long in the Tooth
Preservation and Restoration of the Dentition in the Ageing Patient

 
It is acknowledged that our population is ageing and keeping their natural teeth longer, and along with this there is an increasing expectation by patients that they will retain their natural dentition into their senior years. This presentation will focus on the preservation and restoration of tooth structure and how we can assist our patients to retain, and where necessary, restore their teeth to ensure an ongoing healthy, functional and aesthetic dentition. Strategies for ongoing preventive maintenance of the natural teeth, restored teeth and dentures will also be discussed. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • Protecting exposed root surfaces 
  • Reducing sensitivity and improving aesthetics 
  • Root surface caries – Is it manageable? 
  • Patient friendly procedures 
  • Managing the frail and dependent patient 
  • Toothbrushes and toothpastes 
  • Preventive regimes for homes and nursing homes
