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?
