Topic Description :

Homecare Plaque Removal in Prevention of Caries and Periodontal Disease

Abstract:

Caries and periodontal diseases are complex diseases caused by an unbalanced relationship between the bacteria in the biofilm and the host defence mechanisms. The influence of the host response is being widely studied but at present times, in the absence of proven means, the control of plaque formation constitutes the basic approach to prevention of both diseases. Plaque must be removed frequently by mechanical self-care methods. Tailored instruction and motivation of a person, regular visits to the dental office with professional feedback and reinforcement seem to be the most successful approach to prevent occurrence, recurrence and disease progression.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss as effective plaque control influences prevention and control of caries and periodontal diseases
  • Analyze the parameters of choice for manual and electric toothbrushes choice
  • Evaluate the importance of interproximal devices use and how to choose the most suitable ones
  • Utilize tailored instruction and motivation for each patient

Role of Orthodontist in Forensic Dentistry – Introduction

Role of Orthodontist in Forensic Dentistry - Introduction

Topic Description :

Role of Orthodontist in Forensic Dentistry – Introduction
Learning Objectives:
  • Define forensic dentistry (Odontology)
  • Demonstrate the general role of the forensic odontologist.
  • Recognize the roles of Orthodontist in forensic dentistry.
  • Identify the requirements based on dental records for positive identification of individuals.
  • Compare adjunctive antemortem and postmortem data obtained from orthodontic practice of dental and non-dental craniofacial hard and soft tissues when attempting to affect identification.

Abstract:

Forensic dentistry is a new concept in many parts of the world; most dental fields have a close correlation with this branch of dentistry. Similarly, orthodontics/ orthodontists’ practitioners have important role to offer law enforcement in the detection of crime or in civil proceeding. The aim of this presentation is to identify the role of orthodontists in forensic dentistry by utilizing all dental records obtained from their patients. Dental hard tissues with their anatomic/physiologic variations are the source of uniqueness of every individual, especially when undergoing orthodontic treatment, the changes and uniqueness is further noticed.

Introduction:

Forensic dentistry is a branch of dentistry concerned with the correct management, examination, evaluation and presentation of dental evidence that frequently requires an interdisciplinary approach towards dentistry in the aim of achieving proper diagnosis of cases and individuals. Orthodontics is the part of dentistry that deals with the prevention, guidance of the development of masticatory apparatus, correction of malocclusion, and establishment of functional and aesthetic harmony of the face.

The complexity of orthodontic treatment requires orthodontists to obtain several dental records pre-treatment for sake of treatment planning.

The role of the orthodontist is to evaluate all evidence help determine the age/identification of the person to whom the teeth belong when comparing ante-mortem and post-mortem records.

Most common records: 1- dental cast help in assessing the occlusion, intercanine width, rugae area, depth of the sulcus, 2- Photographs: extra-oral reveal facial form and shape of head, while intra-oral photographs show intraoral findings such as enamel decalcification, enamel cracks, tooth attrition, abrasion and malocclusion, 3- Dental images are crucial for identification by super imposing lateral cephalometic x-ray, evaluating presence of root resorption, restorations, RCT, etc. These comprehensive records can be considered as a documentation that can aid in different grades of identification.

Root Canal Disinfection – Review and Updates

AEEDC Webinars

November 05, 2020 - 16:00 - 17:00

Topic Description :

Root Canal Disinfection – Review and Updates

Abstract:

The anatomical complexities and undebrided parts of the canal may compromise the efficacy of antimicrobials in endodontic treatment. In order to overcome the limitations of ordinary root canal irrigants and medicaments, using innovative and advanced strategies to disinfect the canal system has been proposed. This topic aims to describe different irrigation and intracanal medicament materials in endodontics, describe different techniques to improve root canal disinfection, and discuss recent advances in root canal disinfection.

Introduction:

The major causes of pulpal and periapical diseases are the living irritants which include various microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts and viruses; and the non-living irritants which include mechanical, thermal and chemical irritants. Advanced culturing and molecular biology techniques have shown that primary root canal infections are polymicrobial in nature and are dominated by obligate anaerobic bacteria. The variety of microorganisms present in root canal-treated teeth with persistent periapical lesions is more restricted in comparison to primary root canal infections, which are dominated by E. faecalis. The presence of bacteria negatively influences the outcome of root canal treatment; accordingly, every effort should be made to eradicate infections during treatment. Different anatomy and complexities of the canal are key challenges for effective disinfection in endodontics. Root canal disinfection is a crucial and an integral part during endodontic treatment, to achieve a favorable endodontic outcome.

Learning Objectives:

– Overview root canal disinfection
– Demonstrate different irrigation materials in endodontics
– Demonstrate different intracanal medicament materials in endodontics
– Describe different techniques to improve root canal disinfection
– Discuss advances in root canal disinfection
