The Primary Dentition:  A Hands-on Course

The primary molar presents a significant restorative challenge to dentists due to their unique anatomy and characteristics. The strength of the primary molar itself is often the major limiting factor in the choice of a successful restoration. Their bulbous shaped crown, cervical constriction, prominent pulp horns and broad flat contact can make intracoronal adhesive restorations more difficult to retain. The stainless steel crown restoration offers an exceptional alternative to other restorative materials due to its durability, cost effectiveness, ease of technique and offers the advantage of full coronal coverage. This half day course will take the participant through the indications for using stainless steel crowns, a step by step guide for tooth preparation and kit requirements for your dental practice.

Pulp therapy in the primary dentition is a highly successful clinical procedure following careful case selection. Three different pulp therapy procedures (indirect pulp cap, pulpotomy and pulpectomy) will be discussed in detail during the lecture. The hands-on component will include pulpotomy technique and the use of current medicaments including Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA).

Topics to be covered are:
Pulp Therapy: Diagnosis of Pulp Status, Pulp treatment options (Indirect Pulp Cap, Pulpotomy, Pulpectomy); Pulpotomy Technique and current medicaments available.
Stainless Steel Crown Restorations in the Primary Dentition: Indications for use and Technique Guide.
Hands-On Practical Session: Pulpotomy preparation on two teeth using two different pulp medicaments followed by Stainless Steel Crown Preparations on two teeth following pulpotomy.

OHT’s and Therapists welcome to apply.
