23rd Annual Maine Geriatrics Conference
Oral Health Impact on Systemic Disease in Seniors
The senior population in the United States is increasing at an unprecedented rate. As they face challenges from diminished health and resources, the number of vulnerable elderly will increase. Currently, according to the research of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the greatest unmet health need in older adults is oral health care. The goal of this session is to discuss this challenge and focus on the interface of oral and systemic care in vulnerable elders. This presentation will also discuss the obstacles that seniors face in seeking oral health care in Maine as well as nationally.
