Episode: 4099 GA Dental Health Is More Than a Good Smile

Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

Life is filled with irony. Parents celebrate the arrival of their baby's first teeth. Their children can then tackle more complex food to grow stronger. At age 85 those same children, now much older, want to celebrate the maintenance of their own teeth to enjoy food and maintain their health.

Good dental health is not a foregone conclusion though. There are many dangers of ignoring good oral health. Our guests are two Harvard trained dentists working with the Harvard School of Public Health's senior dental program. These dentists are passionate about improving the health of our teeth and our mouth. They describe what we can do to avoid serious health complications that go far beyond our teeth when we neglect our dental health.

Don't worry though, we are not going to force you into a dental chair and turn on the drill. These dentists explain the value of harmless preventative measures. They provide good reasons why you will want to do everything you can to keep the teeth your parents once celebrated.

This show will be followed by a second show advancing these same topics. We are not aware of any program that has ever aired on dental health for seniors. Thank you for joining us in this important premiere.
