As we age, we quickly learn that some of those bullets that we thought we deflected actually did some harm.

Dental woes of an aging population
Medical Xpress
Public health dentist Mark Nehring remembers attending a lecture on geriatric treatment 20 years ago. The speaker offered up slides of a patient with ample evidence of previous dental care: "crowns in place, very good fillings," Nehring recalls.
