The aging of the community is having a profound impact of the demographic of dental practice with challenges in management of behavior and rehabilitation of dental breakdown. This is often undermined by ongoing medical health challenges and the effects of medication on oral health including saliva flow, maintenance of existing restorations, the often undermining by dental caries, and the challenging effects of tooth wear.
International speakers will address this situation and suggest a general management strategy and the challenge of provision of complete dentures.
