Restorative Management Strategies for the Ageing Patient

Restorative Management Strategies for the Ageing Patient

Event Overview

It is acknowledged that our population is ageing and keeping their natural teeth longer, and along with this there is an increasing expectation by patients that they will retain their natural dentition into their senior years. Advances in restorative materials and techniques provide an increased range of conservative restorative options for managing the older debilitated dentition.

This workshop will look at a range of traditional, and not so traditional approaches to restorative management of the ageing dentition. The workshop will also provide participants with hands-on exercises on minimally invasive conservative restorative techniques that provide cost effective and efficient options for managing the older patient.
