Session Overview:

“AgeDefy Dentistry” is a NEW hands-on course designed to equip dental professionals with skills in the direct restorative management of oral health for the ageing population.

The course covers the physiological changes occurring in the oral cavity as individuals age, laying the foundation for understanding the specific dental needs of older patients. Participants gain practical insights into the impact of age-related factors on oral health, including considerations for systemic conditions, medications, and lifestyle influences.

Participants engage in live demonstrations and practical exercises covering a range of topics in the different direct restorative approaches and ideal dental materials to achieve optimal patient outcomes. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based approaches to preventive care, addressing common dental issues faced by the ageing population, and implementing personalised treatment plans that prioritise the overall well-being of older patients.
