Just like all of us, our patients are advancing in age and are facing some complicated age-related consequences.
This overview looks at some of the contributing factors that will be affecting our aging patients and provides an opportunity to discuss their personal, and our professional dilemmas. We will chew on the facts and spit out potential solutions that will help us all age tastefully. Learning objectives of the course:
- Identify the difference between hyposalivation and xerostomia.
- Look at the challenges with xerostomia and possible solutions.
- Recognize changes intraorally (attrition, wear, erosion…)
- Evaluate in-office and home aides for patients’ home care protocol.
