Multidisciplinary Grand Rounds Study Group Meeting
1.5 CPD Hours | Myths in Dentistry... In-person Event  Join Dr Chankhrit Sathorn and Andrew Thorpe as they demystify the 'Myths in Dentistry' in this hybrid Multidisciplinary Grand Rounds Study Group Meeting.   Registrations open at 6:00pm and presentations begin at 6:45pm. Canap├ęs and refreshments are included in your fee.   Synopsis: Single vs Multi-visit RCT Controversy Presented by Dr Chankhrit Sathorn Single and multiple-visit root canal treatments are alternative forms of treatment. This controversy regarding which regimen is more suitable has existed for over a century.   This talk will address this controversy using evidence-based concepts, to provide a structure on which the clinically-relevant questions in this controversy can be dealt with systematically.   When clinicians are faced with choices of which treatment regimen should be offered to patients, the central issues that should be considered are effectiveness, complications, human factors, and cost.   Controversies for the Modern Dental Extraction Presented by Dr Andrew Thorpe Before dental implants, dental extractions were easier – no thoughts were needed to preserving the buccal plate, no grafting was usually needed, and the advent of antibiotics meant a near-end to worries about infections. The modern dental extraction seems to require extensive thought. What is the most appropriate pain relief in the world of opioid epidemics? Am I really a criminal for fracturing the buccal plate? In this seminar, Dr Andrew will take on some of the more controversial topics in the routine procedure of removing a tooth: -          Will fracturing the buccal plate mean that the patient can’t have a dental implant? -          Are opioids in or out this season? -          The “infected” tooth – should we delay the extraction if the patient isn’t going numb? Do you want to attend online? Limited spaces are available for the presentation at our St Leonards lecture theatre.

Western Division Meeting
6.5 CPD Hours | Anxiety Control in Dentistry... Psychosedation, Oral Sedation and Nitrous Oxide Many of our patients are quite anxious about seeking and receiving dental treatment. It may lead to some people avoiding dental care completely until excruciating pain gives them no choice. Dentists should be able to provide alternatives to control a patient’s anxiety and to assist them to receive treatment. This course will cover a spectrum of anxiety-relieving alternatives. It will give the caring dentist a selection of anxiolytic techniques that can be offered to their patients including psychosedation, oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. All participants will have the opportunity to administer and experience the full range of effects of relative analgesia using nitrous oxide-oxygen, and, after completing the course, will feel confident in setting up and administering this agent. Topics Include: The basics of fear and anxiety in the dental office The utilisation of psychosedation techniques Review of Basic Life Support The utilisation of oral sedation Relevant pharmacology, administration and monitoring Indications/contraindications Managing complications The utilisation of nitrous oxide sedation Relevant pharmacology, administration and monitoring Indications/contraindications Managing complications Learning Objectives: Gain an understanding of the key causes of fear and anxiety in our patients Understand basic psychosedation techniques and be able to apply them Revise Basic Life Support Understand pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, advantages/disadvantages, indications/contra-indications of oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation Gain confidence in utilising oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation During the practical session, participants will work in groups and learn both slow and fast nitrous oxide-oxygen induction techniques. It is essential that all participants wishing to perform any procedure on a colleague in a learning environment are registered dental professionals in Australia....
