Collaborating for Excellence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Prevent and Manage Caries, Malocclusion and Trauma in Children
The purpose of this course is to provide dental practitioners a comprehensive knowledge of the two major causes of tooth loss in children and adolescents – Caries and Trauma. It also attempts to demonstrate to the participants, how a collaborative approach between specialties, in this case orthodontics and pediatric dentistry could lead to better outcomes and predictable long term results. The presentation will review caries transmission, risk and prevention and its application to clinical care for children and adolescents. It will discuss minimally invasive and traditional restorative treatment options and also delve into unique restorative challenges and how orthodontic treatment may provide uncommon solutions. Lastly, the will provide a broad review of trauma to the primary and early permanent dentition and clinical management from a combined pediatric and orthodontic perspective.
Following this course, the participants will be able to:
Explain the importance of the age one dental visit and understand its importance in true prevention of dental diseases.
List strategies for caries prevention; specifically adolescent patients in active orthodontic treatment.
Recognize and describe common traumatic injuries to primary dentition and early permanent dentition.
Understand the basics of emergency management and recognize the alternative options that an interdisciplinary treatment with orthodontics may provide for traumatized or missing teeth.
