Makeovers are ageless



Makeovers are ageless



Dentistry Today 24(4): 90, 92-5



"Older patients" are often treated with indifference when it comes to how they look. The result may often be a patient not receiving the care that his or her goals would dictate. In the featured case, the patient had received dental hygiene care in a dental office for years. The fact that the patient's daughter had to take the initiative to seek care for a very motivated patient indicates a lack of understanding and communication in the patient's original dental office. The treatment plan that met the patient's goals was presented and accepted. It involved a full-mouth reconstruction, eliminating partial dentures, opening a deep bite, treating a diastema with orthodontics, and constructing a new smile. This makeover lent itself to the current trend of improving a smile, but it accomplished much more. The patient now has a firm foundation for better chewing, but perhaps more importantly, the patient, through CAMBRA, has the knowledge to control the disease process that caused the breakdown of her original dentition.
