Event Details

Endodontic management :
Presented by Dr Averil Tse
Providing effective relief and appropriate management of acute symptoms related to endodontic disease can be challenging at the best of times, let alone when under time pressure. Learn clinically effective strategies to diagnose and manage endodontic pain when only a limited amount of time may be available. Receive quick tips and practical tricks on how to successfully temporise a tooth as well as endodontically manage a tooth in pain.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

    • Diagnose pain of endodontic origin
    • Provide appropriate care to manage acute endodontic symptoms
    • Temporise teeth adequately during endodontic treatment.

Periodontal management :
Presented by Dr Benedicta Wong
Pain of periodontal origin can sometimes be the cause of odontogenic pain, resulting in patients seeking treatment. To adequately manage pain, it is of paramount importance to adequately diagnose its cause and distinguish whether the orofacial pain is periodontal, pulpal or non-odontogenic. Explore the diagnosis and management of pain from periodontal origin, and learn tips and practical tricks on how to successfully manage a tooth in pain from periodontal origin.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

    • Diagnose sources of acute pain of periodontal origin
    • Recognise when the pain is not of periodontal origin
    • Identify the best course of treatment to address pain of periodontal origin

Extraction tips :
Presented by Dr Nova Gibson

Treating the emergency extraction patient is a highlight in my week. Nothing is more satisfying than a patient in distress with dental pain being treated and leaving the surgery, pain free and problem solved.
My tips for this experience:

    • Triage the emergency patient
    • Diagnose cases to ‘hand-ball’
    • Increase your enjoyment of extractions
    • Post-op pain relief.
