Geriatric Dentistry: Providing Care for an Aging Population

Price: $19.95 Hours:2 Contact Hours
Item # L0254  

Release Date: April 28, 2014
Expiration Date: April 27, 2017

The number of adults age 65 and older in the U.S. is expected to swell to 72 million by 2030. The aging population will bring both opportunities and challenges to the practice of dentistry. Dentists need to be trained in meeting the oral health needs of older adults to help reduce their burden of chronic disease.

This basic-level course provides dental professionals with basic knowledge and information in gerontology and geriatric dentistry that will enhance their ability to diagnose and manage older patients, distinguish between normal aging-related changes in the tissues of the oral cavity and those resulting from pathological changes, implement appropriate strategies for dealing with patients with cognitive impairments who exhibit care resistance, and make clinical modifications in their dental practices to accommodate the biological changes in their patients that occur as a part of normal aging.

Oral Health Care During Pregnancy: Clinical Guidelines and Management, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $19.95 Hours:2 Contact Hours
Item # L0709  

Release Date: June 29, 2012
Revised Date: June 26, 2015
Expiration Date: June 25, 2018

A variety of physiologic, anatomic, and hormonal changes accompany pregnancy and affect how oral health care is provided. In addition to changes in the oral cavity and altered susceptibility to periodontal disease and other oral conditions, there are changes in the cardiovascular, respiratory, and gastrointestinal systems. There is considerable evidence that some oral conditions may have adverse health consequences. Some studies have demonstrated a link between periodontitis and preterm birth and low-birth weight. In addition, there is considerable evidence that high levels of cariogenic bacteria in mothers are associated with increased dental caries during early childhood.

Unfortunately, dentists, physicians, and patients often misunderstand and avoid oral health care issues during and after pregnancy. This situation exists despite the fact that routine dental procedures are safe in most pregnant patients. To enhance the provision of oral health care in pregnant patients, evidence-based practice guidelines have been developed. This basic-level course addresses current concepts regarding oral health in pregnant women, the impact of their oral health on pregnancy outcomes and early childhood health, and discusses strategies to optimize oral health during pregnancy.
