Comprehensive Health Prevention for Older Adults: Part II

Presenter: Ann Eshenaur Spolarich, RDH, PhD

This course is a continuation of the Comprehensive Health Prevention for Older Adults program and will review common findings in the oral environment, including hypo-/hypersalivation, oral movement disorders, and hard and soft tissue diseases. Nutritional status, activities of daily living and oral hygiene will also be discussed. Participants will learn how to individualize preventive strategies to improve desired health outcomes for their elderly patients for reducing caries, gingival disease and altered salivation. Product selection criteria for antiseptic mouth rinses, fluorides, non-fluoride agents, salivary substitutes, power toothbrushing and interdental cleaning, and denture care will be reviewed.
