Common Oral Health Conditions Self directed learning resource

Introduction

This self directed learning resource is designed to help you familiarise yourself with common oral health conditions experienced by older people. A series of oral health photographs are used to guide you through the 8 categories of the Oral Health Assessment Tool.

For each of the categories of oral health (lips, tongue, gums and oral tissue, saliva, natural teeth, dentures, oral cleanliness and dental pain) you are provided with examples to assist you with what is considered healthy, changes or unhealthy.

You are then prompted to make an assessment on whether an oral health condition is healthy, changes or unhealthy by clicking on your choice and submitting an answer.

Lastly you have the opportunity to verify your answer by checking the correct response.
