    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), 0.75 credits offered

    Yuli Berlin-Broner, DMD | A discussion will address specific challenges that educators face in the classroom when teaching dental trauma. During the session, incorporation of technological aids will be demonstrated, and finally, the audience will learn some useful ‘take-home’ methods to enhance dental trauma education.

    CE: 0.75

    Description: Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are a generational demographic cohort. The Millennial generation is generally characterized by an increased use and familiarity with communications, media, and digital technology. Adopting classroom teaching and curricula to the specific interests and skills of this generation poses a challenge in dental schools’ settings. Dental 2 traumatology is a complex topic and requires multi-disciplinary understanding and comprehensive knowledge. Using various innovative and dynamic techniques for classroom teaching might improve the participation and cooperation of the new generation of learners and thus improve the overall educational outcomes of dental traumatology education. Apart from learning about the fascinating differences between generations, the audience will become familiarized with the unique characteristics of Generation Y dental students. A discussion will address specific challenges that educators face in the classroom when teaching dental trauma. During the session, incorporation of technological aids will be demonstrated, and finally, the audience will learn some useful ‘take-home’ methods to enhance dental trauma education.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

    - Define generation Y and the characteristics of dental students in Gen Y.
    - Discuss the challenges educators face within dental trauma education.
    - Demonstrate the use of technological aids in the classroom to enhance dental trauma education.

  • Acute and Chronic Pain in Trauma Patients

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    Eli Eliav, DMD, MSc, PhD | This presentation will discuss diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic pain, as well as potential mechanisms for the transition from acute to chronic pain. Challenging cases and findings from recent studies will be presented.

    CE: 0

    Description:Pain following trauma to the dental and supporting tissues is common, and in fact is even expected to occur. The pain may be present immediately after or develop within a few days following the injury. Tooth injury may also indirectly affect other orofacial structures such as the muscles of mastication and the temporomandibular joint and induce pains. The pain intensity does not always correlate with the injury extent. In most cases, the pain will recede following dental and routine palliative treatment, as soon as healing of the affected tissue occurs. In a small number of cases the pain persists beyond healing, and occasionally may lead to misdiagnosis and additional unnecessary dental treatment. This presentation will discuss diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic pain, as well as potential mechanisms for the transition from acute to chronic pain. Challenging cases and findings from recent studies will be presented.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    - Describe treatment options for acute and chronic posttraumatic orofacial pain
    - Discuss differential diagnosis of posttraumatic orofacial pain conditions
    - Describe the mechanisms involved in pain transition from acute to chronic

  • Surgical Treatment Options in Young Patients Where Traumatized Teeth Cannot be Preserved

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Simon Storgård-Jensen, DDS, MSD | The prognosis after traumatic dental injury is most often excellent. However, especially after intrusions and avulsions, an elevated risk of dento-alveolar ankylosis may be observed. Untreated, ankylotic teeth may end up in severe infraposition, compromising neighboring teeth and vertical growth of the alveolar process. Infection-related resorption may also lead to loss of previously traumatized teeth in growing individuals.

    Description:The prognosis after traumatic dental injury is most often excellent. However, especially after intrusions and avulsions, an elevated risk of dento-alveolar ankylosis may be observed. Untreated, ankylotic teeth may end up in severe infraposition, compromising neighboring teeth and vertical growth of the alveolar process. Infection-related resorption may also lead to loss of previously traumatized teeth in growing individuals. Techniques to reduce horizontal and vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge will be presented and indications for each technique will be discussed. The techniques include: auto transplantation, decoronation, sandwich osteotomy with interpositional bone grafts, and socket preservation.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

    - List dento-alveolar trauma with an elevated risk of healing complications.
    - Describe clinical and radiographic signs of traumatized teeth that cannot be preserved.
    - Name techniques to reduce horizontal and vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge.

  • Timing of Implant Treatment after Traumatic Dental Injury

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Simon Storgård-Jensen, DDS, MSD| Trauma-related tooth loss often occurs in growing individuals. Strategies to determine the safe time and ideal conditions for implant placement will be presented, as well as different temporary solutions.

    CE: 0

    Description: Trauma-related tooth loss often occurs in growing individuals. It is well documented that placement of dental implants in the alveolar ridge before cessation of growth will lead to 2 gradual infraposition of the implant. Strategies to determine the safe time and ideal conditions for implant placement will be presented. Also, different temporary solutions will be discussed. Timing of implant placement may also be an issue in adult patients. Advantages and disadvantages of immediate, early, and delayed implant placement will be discussed and related to the predictability of the implant treatment - functionally as well as aesthetically.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

    - Recognize the risk of placing implants in growing individuals.

    - Describe methods to evaluate skeletal and cranio-facial maturity.

  • Evaluation and Diagnosis of the Traumatized Dentition

    Contains 5 Component(s), 1 credit offered

    Garry L. Myers, D.D.S. | Correctly identifying the type of dental injury sustained along with establishing baseline diagnostic information will be the first step in providing the best management of care for any traumatic dental injury.

    CE: 0.75

    Description: The traumatized dentition encompasses a broad spectrum of dental injury classifications. Even when immediate treatment needs to be rendered, the clinician must always begin with an initial assessment of the injured patient and dentition that results in a preliminary diagnosis. This initial assessment or evaluation process for traumatic dental injuries should include a) obtaining a thorough history of the events related to the injury itself, b) an initial clinical exam followed by a more thorough evaluation to include pulpal and periapical diagnostic testing, c) a comprehensive radiographic exam and d) establishment of a preliminary pulpal and periapical diagnosis. Once this has been completed along with any immediate emergency care, a long-term treatment plan can be formulated and followed. Understanding the differences of how traumatized teeth respond to diagnostic testing when compared to teeth with healthy pulps is essential. This presentation is geared toward outlining a comprehensive, but efficient, evaluation process done in an orderly and systematic manner. Correctly identifying the type of dental injury sustained along with establishing baseline diagnostic information will be the first step in providing the best management of care for any traumatic dental injury.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to: 

    - Identify key components of obtaining an accurate history related to the traumatic dental injury

    - Develop a systematic and orderly sequence for performing a clinical exam of the traumatized dentition to include diagnostic testing.

    - Describe the benefits of various radiographic methods for evaluating the traumatized dentition
