Restorative Dentistry Challenges in Older Patients

Course at the Royal College on managing and treating restorative problems in older patients (12/6/2009). A brief description is detailed below. The population of both the UK and the world is ageing rapidly. Furthermore population trends in the UK mean that not only are we seeing more older people, their oral health status is changing to one of predominantly dentate individuals rather than the traditional view of edentulism being associated with age. At the same time increasing consumer awareness and a desire to combat the ravages of ageing in terms of appearance and oral function lead to a desire both to maintain teeth in function and for them to look good. These demographic and societal changes will result the dental team being faced with a wide variety of challenges, some new and others in increasing numbers that will need to be addressed when planning care for this important and increasing sector of the population. This planning needs to be undertaken in the context of the functional challenges of ageing per se and the changes that occur in oral and dental tissues with age that influence what can be achieved or how it can be achieved. The purpose of this study day is to pose a series of questions about dental disease and their management and for a group of acknowledged experts in the field to respond to those questions giving information and advice about the latest concepts in management for specific disease processes.
