Section 2 - Managing the Ageing Dentition / 2.6 Podcast: Preventing disease in the older person

A discussion on preventing disease in the older person from our expert gerodontology panel

In this podcast we cover topics raised previously in the MOOC and look to identify practical ways that DCPs can deliver older person preventative care

In this podcast the the panel cover:

  • How do prevent disease amongst older people
  • What can dental nurses do to help in the surgery
  • How important are fluoride supplements, and how to deliver the correct messages
  • How can we motivate an elderly patient and/or their carer to change their habits, especially long standing dietary ones
  • What about when they become increasingly dependent on others or live in a care-home
