Caries management and the older adult

Mark S. Wolff DDS, PhD

This presentation will focus on maintaining caries-free teeth through the latter portion of life utilizing caries risk assessment, preventative strategies, minimally invasive dentistry and modifications of treatment plans.

We will use a model that measures independence to help alert the practitioner to the earliest signs of when high levels of prevention should be provided. We will concentrate on utilization of proven strategies to assure healthy aging of the dentition.

Participants will learn:

  • Participants will learn Caries Risk Assessment for an aging population
  • Participants will learn common sense strategies for maintaining oral health as we age
  • Participants will learn the importance to recognize that aging is not measured in years but in independence and how this recognition can enable dentists/hygienists to prepare patients for healthy aging
