AbstractEsthetic dentistry offers a myriad of opportunities for older adults wishing to improve their smile, oral function, and self-esteem. The challenge for dental professionals is to maintain oral health throughout the patient's lifetime, even through periods of dependence that may include residence in a nursing home. Dental professionals will have increasing opportunities to share their knowledge and expertise about the relation between oral health and overall health, with a variety of health professionals who care for the aging population.
