Changing Paradigms in Caries Management

Speaker: Dr Md Badrun Nafis (Senior Registrar), Paediatric Unit, NDCS

Synopsis: The understanding of the caries process has evolved over the years. Evidence shows the primary pulp to have greater reparative ability than we initially thought. For many years, we were taught that pulpotomywas the preferred treatment over indirect pulp capping, for deep caries in the primary dentition. Is this really true?  What  factors would influence our decision to use one over the other,  what success rates are we looking at and what material would we use?  This lecture shares with you the new paradigms in deep caries management in primary teeth.


Treatment Planning in Paediatric Dentistry

Speaker: Dr Tan Wee Kiat (Senior Consultant & Head), Paediatric Unit, NDCS

Synopsis: As undergraduates, we are often taught treatment planning in a dogmatic fashion, first you do this then this. However the reality is that crafting a treatment plan that works is the most challenging part of paediatric dentistry.   This lecture takes you through the guiding principles of treatment planning and shows how we can sometimes have hits and misses.  Through case discussions, and examples, we learn how to avoid the common pitfalls in treatment planning as we attempt to elevate this skill from a piecemeal approach to a holistic one.
