A number of conditions can lead to esthetically unacceptable dentitions like dental caries, discoloration, dental trauma, early loss of teeth, misalignment and any abnormality of shape, size and color. Today we have a large number of solutions available for esthetic problems in pediatric dentistry. But the biggest dilemma is: How to choose what is best for a particular patient and that situation

  a. Esthetic and Functional Treatment of Traumatic Dental Injuries in Pediatric Patients

Trauma to the oral region occurs frequently in pediatric patients and these emergency situations present a challenge to clinicians. Traumatic dental injuries can also have significant negative functional, esthetic, and psychological effects on children. This course will be a fast paced and exciting evidence-based clinical presentation of the different techniques available to manage traumatic dental injuries in young patients.

  b. Esthetic Solutions for Tooth Developmental Disturbances

Normal tooth development is a very complicated process where members of different cellular systems have to timely interact. It is obvious that such processes may go wrong caused by genetic defects such as amelogenesis and dentinogenesis imperfecta or acquired damage by chemotherapy, irradiation or traumas affecting the primary dentition and transmitted to permanent successors. An esthetically compromised dentition may have serious psychosocial implications which will be described.

Lecture Topics

  • Formulate evidence-based treatment strategies to maximize pulp vitality
  • Review esthetic treatment options for traumatic injuries to primary and permanent teeth with appropriate clinical cases
  • Esthetic solutions for young permanent incisors: diastema, peg laterals, crown fractures
  • Review the evidence-based knowledge on tooth developmental disturbances diagnosis for the different types of dental anomalies: enamel hypoplasia, MIH (molar incisors hypoplasia), fluorosis, amelogenesis imperfecta, dentinogenesis imperfecta
  • Treatment solutions for the different types of dental anomalies
  • Esthetic solutions for young permanent incisors: diastema, peg laterals, crown fractures
  • Esthetic solutions for primary incisors: zirconia crowns, composite strip crowns, composite restorations, and other techniques

Workshop

The hands-on workshop is for you to learn how to apply the benefits of resin composite in your practice and how to restore the primary teeth that most other providers would extract.  You will also develop and improve your skills on how to perform large composites in permanent incisors. The dental market today offers many different options to restore primary and permanent teeth, so that the children can have their healthy and beautiful smile again.

  • Esthetic Solutions for Primary Incisors and Molars:
    • Composite Strip Crowns
    • Class III Composites
    • Class II Composites
  • Class IV Composites for Permanent Incisors
