Effective Solutions to Managing Dental Conditions of a Boomer Generation

Dr. Samuel B. Low

The "over sixty" population will increase significantly during the next decade, dominating our practices.

Get ready for gum disease, dry mouth, root decay and sick implants!

We now see a major increase/frequency of oral conditions associated with the "Baby Boomer Generation." The four primary areas of concern are: 1) chronic inflammation and periodontitis with over 67% having tooth loss disease, 2) Xerostomia at greater than 40% with the compromised lifestyle and symptoms 3) difficulty finding and treating root caries, and 4) implant disease.

We will analyze these primary diseases from initial diagnosis to lifetime disease management. Additionally, we'll explore case presentation strategies and best practices for increasing treatment acceptance by understanding the generational characteristics of this age group and what they want/desire.
