Thursday, March 22, 2012: 12:15 p.m.-1:30 p.m.
Session Type: Lunch and Learning
1.25 CE hours

Sponsored by: Geriatric Oral Research
Description: Systemic conditions and diseases, medications, dietary pattern etc. can affect the salivary function especially the unstimulated salivary flow rate.  Due to a decrease in salivary buffering capacity, increased demineralization and decreased remineralization potential, tooth surface loss can occur. Various causes and treatment methods to prevent tooth surface loss will be discussed.
