Treating the Aging Population – A Frustrating Challenge

Product Details

As your patients age, they require more dental treatment!  Some of them you love to treat while others can be frustrating! What can be done to make your older patients easier to treat and be more likely to accept preventive procedures?  Combined with less-than-adequate financial ability, treating elderly patients can be a challenge.  It’s essential that treatment for older patients is simple, fast, and easy. This video includes demonstrations of simple, inexpensive “directly placed crowns”, easy-to-use preventive restorative and cement materials, caries preventive materials and concepts they will accept, cost cutting staff-oriented preventive and treatment procedures, salvaging restorations and still bringing revenue to your practice, and making dentures actually work well.  We have a responsibility to treat all ages of patients. This presentation will make treating mature people faster, easier, better and financially feasible.
