THE USC GERIATRIC DENTISTRY ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

SYNOPSIS:

Today older adults are seeking dental care in far greater numbers as their life span lengthens and the numbers of seniors in the population increase. Unique to this population are factors such as variable health profiles, social support systems, and functional capabilities. Oral health findings can also be highly variable whether they are compounded by a lifetime of treatment or neglect. Many individuals or their families expect to maintain or restore their dentition and receive regular oral health care with the latest innovative materials and technology available.

Recognizing the diverse nature of the elderly and their needs, this symposium will approach the older adult from a functional perspective and include topics that cover many of the relevant issues faced when treating aging individuals. Practice approaches for both the healthy, community-based patient and frailer individuals will be discussed.
