Oral Health & Senescence

A large proportion of the population now reaches advanced ages, but components of the body may deteriorate. Research has already shown that the underlying process of aging (referred to as senescence) is modifiable. Poor oral health is a risk factor for some senescent-related diseases, but dentistry can prevent or control that with available methods. New oral health technologies may offer additional prevention benefits.

Announcing:  The Douglas Award

The goal of the Douglas Award is to increase dental professionals’ awareness that oral health care may be an important front-line intervention in the prevention and control of numerous senescent-related diseases. It also seeks to inform the public that dental care providers can help prevent many of the fatal and disabling diseases that people fear most as they get older.
