The “over 60” population will increase significantly during the next decade, dominating our practices. Get ready for gum disease, dry mouth, root decay and sick implants from the "baby boomer generation." The four primary areas of concern are: chronic inflammation and periodontitis with over 67 percent having tooth loss disease; Xerostomia at greater than 40 percent with the compromised lifestyle and symptoms; difficulty finding and treating root caries; and implant disease. The course will analyze these primary diseases from initial diagnosis to lifetime disease management. Additionally, attendees will explore case presentation strategies and best practices for increasing treatment acceptance by understanding the generational characteristics of this age group and what they want/desire.
