MCC is likely the biggest factor in oral health in adult America. Multiple medication use gives rise to dry mouth and root caries, and diabetes combined with other chronic disorders is strongly implicated in chronic periodontal disease.
So restoring a decayed root surface, and repetitive scaling and root planing, are often inadequate for the MCC patient.

Because if it can, then the wave of retiring Boomers will keep visiting the dentist. If it can’t, then it is a scramble for the dental practice and for the community.

A good response to MCC.
