Abstract

Preventive regimens that have proven efficacy for older adults include topical fluoride rinses, brush-on gels, and antiplaque agents. The efficacy of patient education for both dental office and institutional patients is documented in this article. The use of a preventive and oral health maintenance plan for each patient can improve his or her quality of life even in the face of multiple chronic conditions.
