Event Details...

The intended audience for this event includes:

A detailed update on paediatric dentistry incorporating orthodontics and theory behind orthognathics and airway correlations. Discussions on how to manage difficult child patients and tackle pulpal problems in early dentition, both in traumatic and atraumatic situations.

Arch shapes and airways

Presented by Dr Braydon Patterson

Airway issues and their relation to orthodontic growth and development is currently a very popular and contentious topic in dentistry. There are many differing and confusing philosophies and beliefs being offered to recent graduate dentists. Using current research, Dr Patterson will objectively discuss dentofacial development, and examine whether concurrent airway dysfunction has a clinically relevant effect on orthodontic growth in children and teenagers.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand dentofacial development in growing patients and what constitutes an airway disturbance
  • Understand the current literature that relates to airway disturbances and dentofacial growth
  • Identify patients with possible airway issues though various diagnostic methods
  • Understand and critically appraise the various orthodontic treatment modalities that are associated with possible airway management.

The difficult child – tips and tricks

Presented by Dr Marilyn Owen

It is common to be faced with a difficult child and parent who wants you to 'fix' the dental problem. What do you do if the child is pre-cooperative, anxious or has developmental or behavioural conditions? Come and learn the tips and tricks to allow a better examination and positive dental experience.

This presentation will discuss how to identify those children who are suitable for behaviour management in the dental clinic, the role of nitrous sedation and when to defer treatment to general anaesthetic.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the appropriate behavioural management options for successful management of the difficult child
  • Identify non-verbal cues and the use of treatment 'tips and tricks' tailored to the child's age, temperament, and medical and dental history
  • Understand the importance of the parent/guardian for successful child dental treatment.

Vital pulp therapy

Presented by Dr James Lucas

Vital Pulp Therapy in children can involve treatment of both the permanent and primary dentition. This can be complicated by the level of dental maturity, the extent of lesion or injury and behavior. This presentation will discuss treatment procedures, complications, materials used and restorative needs.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will understand:

  • What a vital pulp therapy is in children
  • Clinical Indications
  • The medicament that are used
  • Techniques for both permanent and primary dentition
  • Restorative considerations.
