Lecture
Treating Occlusion Stetics And Function In The Older Adult
The masticatory system is a complex structure designed to chew, swallow, phonate and support breathing; all fundamental living functions organized by the neuromuscular system. Therefore, a stable and appropriate occlusion should be the goal of any treatment of the masticatory system at all ages. This is critically important since normal aging processes result in more vulnerable structures in older adults that are more susceptible to persistent dysfunctional habits. Thus, it is crucial that odontological interventions focus their efforts to maximize healthy aging via prevention and early treatment.

Learning Objective :
  1. To describe the importance of maintaining a healthy, functional masticatory system at all life stages
  2. To list at least 3 functional abnormalities frequently observed in the older adult.
  3. To discuss strategies to improve odontological approaches to healthy aging in the community.
