  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Adult orthodontic treatment - a viewpoint
    • Abstract: Kerr, Brett
      Orthodontic treatment in the non-growing patient presents its own challenges, rewards, and advantages. All orthodontic treatment relies heavily on patient understanding and co-operation, and commonly lasts one to three years, requiring multiple appointments.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Genes and environmental interactions in oral and
           oropharyngeal cancer
    • Abstract: Johnson, Newell
      The dental profession has responsibility for the prevention and early diagnosis of cancer of the mouth and of the oropharynx, and is a major contributor to management of these devastating diseases. In Australia, cancer of the oral cavity itself is largely due to tobacco use and alcohol abuse, predisposed to by poor diets, and affects predominantly those in the lower socio-economic classes: the incidence is declining. On the other hand, cancer of the oropharynx is a completely different disease: the major risk factor is sustained infection by "high-risk" types of human papillomavirus; it tends to affect younger adults, and is associated with sexual activity. The approach to primary prevention is obvious in both situations. Secondary prevention by population screening is only viable in high risk populations. Cancer is a genetic disease. To a minor degree, the genes we inherit affect susceptibility. However it is the many types of genetic damage produced by our environment which is driving the growing epidemic of cancer worldwide. In all cancers, acquired defects in the structure and/or the expression of many genes drive uncontrolled cell proliferation, so that a malignant neoplasm spreads locally and throughout the body. The genes involved are those controlling cell division, cell death, cell nutrition, DNA repair, the supply of blood vessels to the neoplasm, and the immune response. Very many biochemical pathways are involved: it is rather like a map of the London Underground, but many times more complex. Defects in one or other of these pathways increase in number and complexity as the neoplasm "progresses". Some of these aberrations are common to many/most patients with a cancer of the mouth or oropharynx: others specific to a subset of patients, or unique to an individual. The mainstay in managing head and neck cancer remains surgery, with adjunctive radiotherapy and chemotherapy. These are highly toxic and disfiguring. We are thus moving towards biotherapies which seek to correct or block the key abnormal pathways of the individual patient. There is no such thing as a single magic bullet which will cure all patients, but drugs, monoclonal antibodies, and interfering ribonucleic acids targeted on the genetic damage for a particular patient are increasingly coming to clinical trial. Successes with some cancers of the breast and colon, for example, encourage the drive to better individualised treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Many will continue to suffer, and our role in prevention, early diagnosis and rehabilitation remains essential - and challenging.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Ddistraction osteogenesis - a panacea for infant
           micrognathia with upper airway obstruction'
    • Abstract: Adhikari, Ashim N; Bordbar, Patrishia; Heggie, Andrew AC; Shand, Jocelyn M; Kilpatrick, Nicky
      Mandibular distraction osteogenesis (MDO) has been described as an effective method of treating upper airway obstruction (UAO) in micrognathic infants with a low morbidity and few short-term complications. This technique has almost eliminated the need for tracheostomy in non-syndromic patients at The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne. However, there are few studies describing the longer-term effects on feeding, growth and the developing mandible. This study describes the experience at the RCH in managing infants with micrognathia over the past twelve years, with particular emphasis on airway, feeding and growth. By international standards, this study comprises one of the larger cohorts of children under five years who have had MDO (n=73). This retrospective review shows that the procedure is effective in alleviating the need for airway assistance and supplemental feeding without adversely affecting the growth of these children. This study makes a significant contribution to the evidence base underpinning MDO as the preferred surgical intervention for infants with micrognathia and UAO.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - How eHealth strategies may enhance dental research
    • Abstract: Lam, Raymond
      Although evidence based dentistry has been the accepted protocol in guiding clinical decisions, there are challenges with establishing an adequate research base. This is no more obvious in modern dentistry where the gap between established research and new products and procedures is widening. Whilst traditional research methods have served the profession well, it may be an opportune time to take advantages of computer technology to enhance research. With this in mind, this paper introduces novel strategies in eHealth with a focus on item codes in electronic data collation and dental informatics. By considering the recent Chronic Disease Dental Scheme and the Australian Schedule of Services and Glossary, this paper will illustrate how e-health strategies may provide a cost effective solution to enhancing research that is applicable to the individual clinician and the entire profession.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Dentofacial deformities and orthognathic surgery in
           Hong Hong and Glasgow
    • Abstract: Lee, Crystal TY; Cheung, Lim K; Khambay, Balvinder S; Ayoub, Ashraf F; Benington, Philip
      To compare the cross-ethnic difference in dentofacial deformity profile and the associated surgical management in Chinese and Caucasian patients who required orthognathic surgery in Hong Kong and Glasgow, respectively. Material and Methods: This is a retrospective study of consecutive hospital patients' records from the Prince Philip Dental Hospital in Hong Kong and the Glasgow Dental Hospital and School in Glasgow from 2003 - 2012. Data pertaining to patient demographics, diagnosis, surgical treatment received and complications were recorded. Results: 581 and 217 cases were retrieved in Hong Kong and Glasgow, respectively. Both centres shared a similar patient demographic profile. Class III skeletal pattern was the most prevalent for both centres. A significantly higher prevalence for bimaxillary dentoalveolar hyperplasia, total vertical maxillary excess and mandibular asymmetry was seen in Hong Kong, while a higher prevalence for bimaxillary retrusion and zygomatic hypoplasia was found in Glasgow. To address these, segmental Le Fort I osteotomies, vertical subsigmoid osteotomies, and lower anterior subapical osteotomies were preferred in Hong Kong, while non-segmentalized Le Fort I osteotomies and sagittal split osteotomies were more preferred in Glasgow. Further facial aesthetics surgeries were performed, with septo-rhinoplasty common in Hong Kong and zygomatic augmentation common in Glasgow. Both centres shared a similar complication profile.

    • Abstract: Fricker, John
      This presentation introduces concepts of planning orthodontoc treatment during the mixed dentition phase of growth and development. Planning commences with an understanding of the nomal presentation of the dentition and follows of the possibilities of deviation from the normal. In this lecture, I will discuss occlusal abnormalities requiring early intervention as a preventive or interceptive approach to orthodontic treatment.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Preparing malaysian dental graduates to provide care
           for patients with special health care needs - how do we compare with
           Australia' Education special needs dentistry in Malaysia
    • Abstract: Ahmad, Mas S; Razak, Ishak A; Borromeo, Gelsomina L
      Changing trends in population health suggests a rise in the number of people living with special health care needs (SHCN) indicating increasing needs and demands for oral health care amongst this patient cohort. This paper focused on the role of undergraduate education in preparing graduates to become competent in managing patients with SHCN, thus bridging the gap in access to oral health care. It will discuss the findings of a study on teaching and learning in Special Needs Dentistry (SND) in Malaysia, a developing country with increasing awareness in health and welfare for people living with SHCN. The level of undergraduate education in SND in Malaysian dental schools was compared with Australian counterparts. The study compared the educational experience between the two countries, leading to identification of areas that can be developed in the dental undergraduate curriculum in Malaysia. The study also obtained information pertaining to how Malaysian undergraduate dental students' perceive those with SHCN. Baseline information obtained can direct global development of dental education in an effort to reduce oral health inequalities and improve oral health status of those with SHCN.

    • Abstract: Batstone, Martin D
      The theme of this conference is "From the genome to the nursing home: Everything under the sun". Whilst population predictions are difficult and the rate of fertility and overseas migration can only be estimated, one prediction holds true across all models of projection - ageing of the population. Improvements in nutrition, sanitation and health care have led to a marked increase in the median life expectancy of the Australian population to 74.4 years for boys and 80.3 years for girls (at birth).

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Third molars: Indications for intervention
    • Abstract: Hyam, Dylan M
      The management of third molars remains a skill and art. Evidence is still developing to help guide clinicians in their decision making. This article provides clinicians with a decision matrix which allows them to tailor a solution to the individual patient's needs. The matrix articulates the need to identify the indication for surgery, then modify the surgical plan to account for; surgical risk, the patients current medical status, their future medical needs, and their social and financial circumstances. An examination is made of the evidence for different indications for intervention, an assessment protocol for surgical planning, and a review of the common medical issues which might impact upon the surgical decision matrix.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Root caries - the emerging challenge in dental
           caries management
    • Abstract: Walsh, Laurence J
      The prevalence and severity of root surface caries is increasing as the risk factors for root exposure and cariogenic attack become stronger at the population level. Prevention for root caries can be thought of as a multifaceted approach involving (1) methods to protect roots from exposure, (2) protection of roots once they become exposed to the oral environment by using various coating materials, (3) and the application of fluorides, CPP-ACP and other materials to roots to make them more resistant to dental caries. With an increase in the number of vulnerable elderly in the population, specific efforts should be made to pro-actively screen older adults for root surface lesions, so that the least invasive methods of care are needed and teeth are not lost because of pulpal involvement. When restorations are indicated, glass ionomer cements are preferred over other materials. Root surface caries presents a significant challenge for the dental profession in the 21st century. The lesions can be difficult to identify in clinical and radiographic examinations, both of which when used alone underscore the true number of root surface caries lesions by approximately 50%.1 Taking this into account, the severity of root surface caries lesions may well be much higher than has been reported in large surveys which did not use dental radiographs.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Application of swept-source optical coherent
           tomography to caries diagnosis
    • Abstract: Tagami, Junji
      Swept-source optical coherence tomography(SS-OCT) is a new imaging technology using optical light with the wavelengths around 1300nm. The SS-OCT provides us the 3 dimensional image with much higher resolution than dental X-ray. The extent of caries lesion is very clearly observed in the obtained image. The purposes of this article is to introduce the recent research on the SS-OCT imaging of tooth and to discuss the possibility of clinical application of the SS-OCT for diagnosing occlusal caries, inter-proximal caries, recurrent caries, root caries, cracks, and monitoring the early caries lesion.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Genetic anomalies of the craniofacial skeleton
    • Abstract: Heggie, Andrew AC
      With the evolution of sophisticated genetic testing, many disorders that were previously deemed to be "idiopathic" or of "unknown aetiology" have been shown to have a genetic mutation or inheritance pattern that accounts for the phenotypical features. There is a growing transition from grouping disorders by their clinical features to that of a classification based on genetics. Cleft lip and palate remains the most common disorder managed in the paediatric setting followed by craniofacial microsomia, yet the cause of these anomalies remains unclear and is likely to be polygenic. The syndromic craniosynostoses, where premature fusion of calvarial and cranial base sutures results in retardation of mid-facial growth, are a particular challenge to the clinician. Micrognathia, with associated upper airway obstruction, such as can occur in Pierre Robin sequence, can be managed with newer techniques of mandibular lengthening that has largely eliminated the need for tracheostomy. There is also a vast array of craniofacial syndromes such as Gorlin syndrome and Beckwith Wiedemann Syndromes that have genetic markers in a proportion of affected individuals that may inform the diagnosis, help to more accurately predict the biological behaviour of the condition and may influence treatment decisions. The management of typical patients with specific conditions are presented to demonstrate the need for a protocol for treatment through growth until skeletal maturity.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Hypodontia - the challenges of restoration in the
           young patients
    • Abstract: Harley, Kathryn
      Severe Hypodontia is present when six or more permanent teeth (excluding third permanent molars) are absent. This presents a significant challenge for the Paediatric Dentist who will be required to restore function and aesthetics whilst the child is growing and the dentition developing. A range of treatment options may be considered including removable and fixed prostheses as well as direct restorations. Much of what can be achieved will depend on whether or not the child is able to comply with treatment. Microdont teeth, a lack of clinical crown height and restricted alveolar growth all contribute to the complexity of management in young patients. It is important to ensure that children can access appropriate care as much can be done to improve their dentitions.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Minimally invasive aesthetic restoration with
           innovative adhesive materials
    • Abstract: Tagami, Junji
      Among the adhesive resin materials, the 2-step self etching adhesive is now recognized as the gold standard of adhesive. By the self etching adhesive, the so called "Super Dentin" is created at the dentin adjacent to bonding resin, which is more resistant to the acid and basic attack than normal dentin. Even with excellent adhesive materials, the shrinkage stress of the composite resin is still a concern in clinical situation. The purposes of this article is to provide the latest information on the adhesive resin materials and the clinical procedure to obtain perfect adaptation of filling material to cavity floor and walls. The minimally invasive approach in caries treatment which is effective to reduce the post operative sensitivity is also introduced.

           individual patient risk
    • Abstract: Bischof, Werner
      Dental implant supported prostheses provide a valuable solution for tooth replacement in dental reconstruction and rehabilitation. The high level of success and predictability of initial osseointegration and long term function of dental implants have been well documented. It is recognised that the factors contributing to this success are multi-factorial in nature, with documented local and systemic risk indicators that may contribute to complications. Of importance to the clinician and the patient is how relevant is the risk of complications or failure. This paper aims to explore the literature regarding the implant survival, success and complications and what may be the limitations in the discussion of outcomes and risks with the individual patient.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - Determining risk factors for periodontal diseases: A
           risky business'
    • Abstract: Brown, Louise F
      Analytical epidemiology can be a powerful tool to determine risk factors for diseases, and potentially uncover causality of chronic diseases. However, it is governed by strict research methodology to ensure rigour of the results of studies. In the attempts to identify and quantify risk factors for periodontitis, many of the studies fall short of the scientific rigour, particularly with regard to the measurement and classification of individuals with and without disease, or progression of periodontal disease. The lack of consensus over how to measure and classify periodontitis cases has led to reporting of a pletora of "significant" associations, either identifying periodontitis as a risk factor for systemic diseases, or in identifying risk factors for the development of periodontitis. Many of these results are later not validated by replicate studies, or by studies using a different method of classifying a person with periodontitis. This paper looks as some of these methodological issues and the influence of classification on analytical epidemiological results.

           paediatric dentist, oral surgeon and orthodontist
    • Abstract: Andreasen, Frances M
      Autotransplantation of premolars for lost anterior incisor teeth in young patients is a safe and predictable procedure. Teeth which have been avulsed and replanted and with signs of ankylosis (replacement resorption) or late diagnosis of inflammatory/infection-related root resorption with large defects on the root surface, intrusions, or with crown-root fracture, as well as teeth with dubious endodontic success may be suitable for autotransplantation with premolar teeth. Autotransplantation of premolars with incomplete root formation is an excellent tool for meeting this need, with a 10-year survival rate of 90% in the hands of experienced clinicians. The joint roles required of the paediatric/restorative dentist, oral surgeon and orthodontist is discussed.

    • Abstract: Ye, Qingsong; Xu, Jia; He, Yan; Sandham, Andrew
      In this study, a novel material, fluoride-containing Poly (L-lactic acid) (PLLA) nanofibre scaffold was successfully constructed through electrospinning process. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image showed that the morphology of the fibres was uniform and smooth, and the average diameter of the fibres was about 300 nm. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) proved that a lot of calcium fluoride (CaF2) nanoparticles with an average diameter of about 50 nm were well dispersed in the PLLA fibre matrix. Fluoride is one of the few inorganic ions which are able to stimulate osteoblasts (OB). This novel material seems to be a promising scaffold for bone tissue engineering.

    • Abstract: Shane, Frederic
      eHealth provides an important opportunity to improve the quality and safety of healthcare. Every year Australians have an average of 22 interactions with the health system. Most of the information from these visits is currently held in paper based records in separate locations. The PCEHR is designed to assist in information sharing with multiple sources of health information being summarised and accessed through a central point. There are many misconceptions regarding eHealth both from a health practitioner and patient perspective. It is important to realise what the eHealth system is and is not. Dental Practitioners should also be aware of secure messaging, e prescriptions and e pathology. Dental Practitioners to be ready for eHealth should consider among other things having broadband internet access, have computer terminals in the clinical rooms, have appropriate dental software and utilise electronic dental records.

  • Volume 22 Issue No. - The restorative management of developmental enamel
    • Abstract: Harley, Kathryn
      Previously children with enamel defects tended to fall into two groups, those who had received extensive treatment or those who had received none at all. With an increase in the types of restorative interventions available, advances in dental materials and a greater understanding of the nature of enamel defects, treatment of young patients to improve aesthetics and function is not only extremely successful but also conservative. Ideally any technique used should be minimally invasive, not destructive of healthy enamel and should not leave the tooth structurally weaker as a consequence. Children with either hypomineralised or hypoplastic enamel often complain of sensitivity or the poor appearance of their teeth. Early diagnosis and prompt management of this age group to reduce symptoms and improve the aesthetics will greatly improve their quality of life.

    • Abstract: Broadbent, Jonathan M; Thomson, WMurray; Poulton, Richie
      The Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study is a lifecourse study of health and development in a cohort of children born in Dunedin between 1 April 1972 and 31 March 1973. The Study members were assessed at birth and ages 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, 21, 26, 32, and most recently at age 38, when 95.4% of the surviving Study members participated. The Dunedin Study dataset contains a broad range of health data, including oral health information. The oral health-related research publications of the Dunedin study over the past 40 years have included discussion of the social determinants of health, dental neglect, use of dental services, aetiology of developmental defects of dental enamel, epidemiology of dry mouth, and risk factors for periodontal disease, dental caries, and poor oral health-related quality of life.

  • Volume 21 Persistent endodontic infection - re-treatment or surgery'
    • Abstract: Love, Robert M
      Management of a tooth with persistent periradicular disease primarily involves management of persistent intraradicular infection. Conventional endodontic re-treatment is the main modality that will manage this condition although endodontic surgery with or without retreatment is a viable option in cases. Case selection involves an appreciation of the disease aetiology and expected outcomes and consideration of patient, tooth and clinician factors. Both conventional endodontic re-treatment and surgery have high long-term success and survival rates and it has been shown that an endodontically treated tooth with persistent periradicular pathology that can be managed by conventional endodontic re-treatment or surgery and restoration has comparable, and potentially more beneficial, outcomes to treatment options involving tooth loss and rehabilitation, such as an implant supported crown. As such endodontic retreatment should be the prime treatment modality unless a tooth has reached a stage where these techniques cannot manage ongoing disease and/or structural integrity.

    • Abstract: Kumar, Harleen; Palamara, Joseph; Burrow, Michael F; Manton, David J
      Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) involves enamel hypomineralization of systemic origin affecting one or more first permanent molars (FPM) and is often associated with other teeth, particularly the incisors. A challenging condition for both the clinician and the patient, MIH affected teeth are often subjected to repeated treatments and frequently the decision to extract one or more FPM is made. At present, there are no clinical reports of available restorative materials that are able to provide consistently adequate restorations on hypomineralized teeth. The concept of resin infiltration, which involves occluding incipient enamel carious lesions with low viscosity resins to arrest or slow the development of caries has the potential to be applied to hypomineralized enamel. Successful penetration of resin infiltrant into MIH affected enamel may aid in improving its micromechanical properties.

  • Volume 21 The application of skeletal anchorage in the correction of
           anterior open bite and skeletal class iii malocclusion: A paradigm shift
    • Abstract: Tarraf, Nour Eldin
      In recent years orthodontic treatment has been revolutionized by the introduction of skeletal anchorage or temporary anchorage devices (TADs). Many malocclusions, which have been previously only treatable through orthognathic surgery, such as skeletal open-bites, can now be managed non-surgically with less biological cost to the patient. Furthermore the recent application of TADs in the treatment of growing skeletal Class III patients is not only minimizing the need for obtrusive appliances, such as head gear and face masks, but it is also proving to deliver better and superior results to conventional growth modification protocols with more patient acceptance and less need for compliance. This overview covers the applications of TADs in the treatment of skeletal open bites and skeletal Class III malocclusions with reference to current evidence and clinical case presentations.

      The impacted canine is relatively common in incidence and can often lead to difficult treatment planning decisions. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging has improved diagnosis and treatment planning of impacted canines. In particular, this technology has allowed the clinician to accurately locate and visualize these teeth better than ever before, as well as greater appreciate the degree of damage to neighbouring teeth such as lateral incisors. Improved diagnosis and treatment planning with CBCT has therefore resulted in improved treatment outcomes. The objective of this presentation will be to cover the incidence, complications and management of impacted canines from an orthodontic perspective. Impacted canines are commonly cited as occurring in 1% of the population. Complications of impacted canines include root resorption and devitalization of the adjacent lateral incisor, ankylosis, cyst formation and prolonged retention of the deciduous canine. Interceptive management of impacted canines may include the removal of the deciduous canine. Management of impacted canines also include either their removal or orthodontic movement into their correct position.

  • Volume 21 Implant complications: Risk evaluation, diagnosis, management
           and outcomes
    • Abstract: Peake, Gregory G
      Dental implants and their restorations have become an accepted and predictable modality of treatment. The literature reflects excellent long-term survival rates. However, survival of an implant does not necessarily translate to success, and in between these two outcomes lies the world of implant complications. Complications associated with dental implants occur with both the restorative and surgical components, with the restorative component complications being more frequent and to some extent, more easily managed. Surgical complications are difficult to manage, and can be the result of many aspects of the implant surgery. Potential complications can arise from poor planning, poor case selection, and poor execution. Complications can also occur where no technical or surgical errors are apparent, but where biology and the fundamental fl aw of the trans-mucosal design of dental implant prostheses, adversely affects the outcome. This presentation outlines the nature of potential complications and looks at practical and pragmatic methods, first to try to prevent complications, through improved case selection and execution; secondly, it discusses the most effective methods to prevent complications in implants already installed, by adequate maintenance programmes. Lastly, it deals with those cases which require clinical management of the complications. This presentation provides the clinician with a greater understanding of the difficulties in managing implants that are not progressing as we, the clinicians, and the patients, had originally expected.

           predictable clinical and aesthetic outcomes
    • Abstract: Danesh-Meyer, Michael
      The placement of dental implants is dependent on a number of factors relating to both the patient and the site in which implant placement is contemplated. Additionally, there has been a general trend towards immediacy in implant therapy. This paper considers case selection and clinical decision-making and treatment guidelines in cases where immediate implant placement is contemplated. Treatment alternatives, including site preservation, early and delayed implant placement are also discussed.

  • Volume 21 Endodontic assessment: Pulps, pain and prognosis
    • Abstract: Abbott, Paul V
      Pulp, root canal and periapical conditions are the most common reasons for patients to present to dentists for emergency or urgent management. These conditions will be either inflammatory in nature or due to infections, with infections also causing inflamed tissues. In order to accurately diagnose such conditions and to then manage them appropriately, it is essential that dentists have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the various conditions that affect the pulp, the root canal system and the periapical tissues. Traditionally, many dentists have used vague and misleading terms to indicate pulp diseases - such as ' vital' and 'nonvital' pulps. However, these terms are very inaccurate and meaningless as they do not accurately indicate the state of the pulp (only the presence or absence of blood supply) and they do not indicate the management options. For example, the pulp of a tooth that responds to pulp sensibility tests and is therefore designated as 'vital' could have any one of 12 different conditions if a more comprehensive diagnostic classification is used. These 12 conditions require different management - such as no treatment (e.g., for a clinically normal pulp), caries removal or restoration replacement (e.g., for acute reversible pulpitis), root canal treatment (e.g., for acute irreversible pulpitis) or extraction (where the tooth is not suitable for further restoration). Similarly, a tooth that does not respond to pulp sensibility testing and was previously designated as 'non-vital' could have any one of 10 different pulp or root canal conditions which require different management. In addition to considering the pulp and root canal conditions, the diagnosis must also include assessment of the periapical tissues, ideally also using a comprehensive diagnostic classification that includes all of the possible tissue changes that can occur throughout the life of a tooth. Overall, there are 17 different pulp/root canal conditions and 14 different periapical conditions in these two classifications. When diagnosing any tooth, both tissues must be considered (because the state of the pulp/ canal determines the periapical condition) and therefore there are many permutations and combinations that must be considered.

  • Volume 21 Attrition and erosion: Restorative planning and performance
    • Abstract: Burrow, Michael F
      The number of patients presenting with severe attrition and associated erosion is increasing in frequency. Treatment of this patient group is very challenging as it is simply not just a case of replacing lost tooth tissue, but also trying to identify and then eliminate the aetiological factors responsible for the loss of tooth structure. In most cases restorative treatment involves extensive rehabilitation of the dentition to restore the aesthetics and function and also to prevent further tooth loss. Such treatment often involves a multidisciplinary approach to eliminate and/or reduce causative factors prior to definitive restoration of teeth. Treatment needs to focus on quick intervention when the problem has been identified and diagnosed. Restorative treatment involves careful if not complex planning culminating in the establishment of a well defined and ongoing maintenance plan. Long-term success of treatment is centred on the maintenance phase. Current restorative options include the use of extensive resin composite build-ups. This is often the best initial starting point as it allows for adjustments, as well as being a reversible and more conservative procedure. The use of indirect restorations is likely to provide a longer lasting outcome after initial stabilization, whether it is metal- or ceramic-based or a combination.

  • Volume 21 Attrition and erosion: Assessment and diagnosis
    • Abstract: Meyers, Ian
      The management of patients with extensively worn and badly broken down dentitions presents a difficult challenge in dental practice and restorative treatments are often complex, time consuming and costly to implement, so careful case selection and treatment planning is essential. Ultimately the success of any restorative intervention is very dependent on the stability of the oral environment and the status of the remaining tooth structure. Prior to the commencement of any restorative treatment an understanding of the importance of the disease process, the risk factors in the mouth, and the intrinsic and extrinsic factors which affect the oral balance is critical. While there is a growing range of materials and techniques available for cost effective and conservative management of these cases, failure to take a systematic approach to assessment and stabilization may result in early restorative failure, rapid recurrence of the problems and a repeat restoration cycle. Therefore successful management of these patients must include an appropriate mix of preventive and restorative strategies.

    • Abstract: Schifter, M
      Adverse, that is unintended untoward effects of medications, are increasing in incidence and their severity, given the aging of the Australian and New Zealand population and associated drug use. Not only are the number of agents that our patients are using increasing, including the increased use of "alternate" or "complimentary" medications, but also their complexity, with the advent of potent, targeted, biological agents. The result is an increasing number of our patients will be at greater risk of adverse effects from their medications. These adverse effects include the impeding of the safe delivery of dental treatment and the adverse oral and dental manifestations and complications related to the use of medications.

  • Volume 21 Non-prescription medications: Considerations for the dental
    • Abstract: Kingon, Angus
      The widespread availability of non-prescription medications has a significant potential impact on dental practice. Dentists are trained to provide scientifically-based advice on the appropriate use of medications, but it is not uncommon for patients to take matters into their own hands, especially if it is felt that the treatment provided is not solving a specific problem, or is insufficient. Well-meaning but often ill-informed family and friends frequently have an opinion as to what should be done. Not only may the suggested treatment not be effective, it may also be harmful. Over-the-counter medications can easily be obtained, and there is nothing to stop individuals exceeding recommended doses, and if this occurs, there could be adverse medical sequelae. Patient compliance in taking prescription medications is known to be problematic, and when combined with the ready availability of complementary medications, probiotics and illicit drugs, the risk of self-harm can be seen to be a distinct possibility. To compound the position, sometimes there seems to be, in a practical sense, little regulation on the advertising and marketing of non-prescription medications, which can leave consumers not only confused but potentially vulnerable. While complementary medicines may not have a significant role in dental practice in 2012, that may not always be the case as research continues, and reference is made to some aspects of ongoing work. Non-prescription medications are discussed, and some effects on oral health are considered.

  • Volume 21 The role of the dentist in the management of systemic conditions
    • Abstract: Cullinan, Mary
      The rates of lifestyle-related diseases are increasing. Worldwide there is an obesity epidemic, one of the consequences of which is an overwhelming increase in type 2 diabetes, not only in adults, but also in children and adolescents. Many cases are currently undiagnosed resulting in serious complications and placing individuals at increased risk for cardiovascular disease. As many diseases share common risk factors, the current emphasis is on primary prevention and risk assessment by all health care providers to enable detection and early intervention. Lifestyle factors that impact on oral health can also have an impact on general health, and lifestyle behaviours that promote better oral health can decrease the risk for chronic disease. In this context, changing oral health behaviour to promote better oral health may directly impact on improving general health for all age groups. Risk assessment for systemic diseases in the dental setting is explored to provide dental professionals with a framework for promoting better overall health for their patients.

  • Volume 21 Periodontal treatment and systemic conditions
    • Abstract: Ivanovski, Saso
      It has been reported that patients with periodontal disease have a greater prevalence of systemic disease than the general population. Furthermore, we are faced with an ageing population that is retaining its teeth for longer, and tends to present for periodontal management with a variety of systemic conditions. There is ample evidence to show that periodontal treatment results in a systemic response, which includes bacteraemia and systemic inflammatory cytokine release. Certain systemic conditions present unique challenges in the treatment of periodontal disease. These conditions include cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and cancer. The various treatment modalities for these systemic diseases can impact on periodontal treatment, and conversely periodontal treatment can influence systemic conditions and their management. Close collaboration with the treating physician and timely provision of periodontal treatment are important considerations of managing the systemically compromised patient.

    • Abstract: Borromeo, Gelsomina L
      It is a well-understood fact that the world's population is ageing. Concomitant with that is an increase in the chronicity of disease including dental disease. The challenges faced by the dental profession in managing patients as they age are becoming increasingly important. What do we know and understand about diseases and their impact on dental health in the elderly' What role do salivary dysfunction and biofilms play and how are these integrated with general and oral health' Are we really prepared to manage the impact of these factors and what is the profession doing to better equip itself for the inevitable change to dental practice that is likely to ensue' Dental education in Special Needs Dentistry and in particular geriatric care expands beyond the realms of the University setting. There is potential to expand knowledge in dental care amongst the elderly through continuing professional development that is now mandatory across Australia and New Zealand. Training should not be limited to University curricula. It should extend to include medical and allied health staff, staff in aged care facilities and all those involved in policy and decision making for the elderly.

  • Volume 21 Informed consent, dementia and oral health care provision
    • Abstract: Ting, Graeme
      Managing patients with dementia requires a practitioner to exercise diverse skills. Communicating with the patient (as their dementia allows), relatives, caregivers and medical personnel are essential elements in the care process. Diagnosis of oral health problems may not be straightforward, clinical examination and treatment planning may be hampered by poor cooperation from the person with dementia. Practitioners must view any treatment from the patient's perspective and balance this with the requirements for sound clinical care. The consent process must be approached in a manner that fulfils the 0thical responsibilities that acknowledge patient rights. This can be difficult when managing a patient with dementia. This paper will explore issues surrounding the consent process and the provision of oral health care to people suffering from dementia. It is hoped that readers will be stimulated to review their practice; especially related to informed consent, whether they routinely manage patients with dementia or not. Such practice evaluation should consider the wants and needs of patients and families on a broader than clinical basis and thus enhance the care that is brought to this group of interesting and often challenging patients.

The paper discusses the role of imaging and other examination techniques to assess the nature of OSA and what treatment you can offer a patient. When should a patient be offered a mandibular advancement splint' What type should be used' How do we know it is working' Surgical treatment of OSA is a controversial area. This paper provides an understanding of which patients may benefi t from surgery and when is an appropriate time to refer. An overview of the three main types of surgery and their outcomes are discussed. Less experienced practitioners will feel better able to talk to patients about OSA and for those with a special interest in OSA there is new material to stimulate further discussion.

      The optimum management strategy for potentially malignant disorders remains a constant challenge as our present knowledge is still short of being conclusive. In spite of its shortcomings as an accurate predictive marker, the assessment of the severity of epithelial dysplasia continues to be useful in risk assessment. It is important to use a combination of epidemiological, clinical and histopathological input when deciding on the most appropriate management for an individual patient. Advanced research exploring molecular markers for diagnosis and risk predictions appear to be promising. However, these tests have not evolved to a stage that they could be used for routine diagnostics at the clinical setting.

  • Volume 21 Caries management: Is the "seal the deal"'
    • Abstract: Foster, Lyndie A
      A barrier to providing sealants has been the concern about inadvertently sealing over caries, but today the management of dental caries has evolved from the domain of techniques based on complete removal of carious tissue prior to tooth restoration or sealant, to include a range of techniques where some, or even all caries is sealed in beneath restorations, sealants or infiltrants. There is a significant, and growing, evidence base supporting these techniques as caries management strategies for children and adolescents. These techniques are not new but build on earlier concepts and research. These concepts offer a real way forward and departure from invasive restorative treatments. Some issues, however, are not completely resolved, and future solutions may herald a new era of restorative dentistry, perhaps with the concept of filling with no drilling since the "seal is the deal". These techniques and issues will be considered in the New Zealand context.

    • Abstract: Harding, Winifred
      A mutilated dentition is one in which teeth have been extracted, traumatically lost, extensively restored or extensively worn. Patients have become more dentally aware over the years and have been led by both television and the Internet to expect instant makeovers and perfect smiles. In the USA there was an 800% increase in adults receiving orthodontic treatment between 1970 and 2003. Despite this, it still comes as a surprise to many adult patients that braces are effective and widely used as part of the rehabilitation process.

    • Abstract: Hanlin, Suzanne M
      An interdisciplinary treatment plan is often required to allow restoration of function and aesthetics in the "mutilated dentition". Loss of teeth is associated with social and psycological impacts for the patient, however most often aesthetic requirements and financial constraints predominate in the treatment decision making. Historically, unfavourable occlusal contacts have been viewed as predisposing factors in the development of temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). This linkage has now been refuted by many authors and it is understood that occlusion may be a co-factor only in TMD. In determining the "ideal occlusion" to restore the mutilated dentition consideration must be given to an occlusion that is physiologic for the patient, and the simplest scheme to construct from a clinical and technical view point. In successfully restoring function of the teeth an aesthetic outcome can be achieved. The planning and treatment for three patients is reviewed to highlight interdisciplinary patient care from a prosthodontics perspective.

  • Volume 21 "MI" caries management - an overview
    • Abstract: Banerjee, Avijit
      Minimum intervention dentistry, with its non-operative prevention and control of disease, underpins the basis of a patient-centred, team-based approach to managing dental caries in patients, who must take an active responsibility in maintaining their personal oral health. In patients where cavities are present causing pain, poor aesthetics and/or functional problems, restorations will need to be placed. Minimally invasive caries excavation strategies can be deployed depending on the patient's caries risk, lesion-pulp proximity and vitality, the extent of remaining supra-gingival tooth structure and clinical factors (e.g., moisture control, access) present in each case treated. Excavation instruments, including burs/handpieces, hand excavators, chemo-mechanical agents and/or air-abrasives which limit caries removal selectively to the more superfi cial caries-infected dentine and partial removal of caries-affected dentine when required, help create smaller cavities with healthy enamel/dentine margins. Using adhesive restorative materials, the operator can, if handling with care, optimize the histological substrate coupled with the applied chemistry of the material so helping to form a durable peripheral seal and bond to aid retention of the restoration as well as arresting the carious process within the remaining tooth structure. Achieving a smooth tooth-restoration interface clinically to aid the co-operative, motivated patient in biofilm removal, is an essential pre-requisite to prevent further secondary caries.

    • Abstract: Papapanou, Panos N
      'Periodontal diseases' is a collective term used to describe the infl ammatory changes of the tooth supporting structures, i.e., the gingiva, the alveolar bone, the periodontal ligament and the root cementum, that may lead to tissue destruction, reduced tooth support and, ultimately, to tooth loss. Commonly in medicine, classification systems for pathologic conditions are ever evolving schemes that are periodically revised to refl ect current knowledge related to the clinical presentation, aetiology, pathobiology, treatment response or long term prognosis of the disease in question. The classification of periodontal diseases is no exception; after several revisions over the years, the currently accepted system refl ects the consensus report of a 1999 International Conference. The classification recognizes eight main categories, three of which (Gingival Diseases, Chronic Periodontitis and Aggressive Periodontitis) will be involved in the present series of lectures.
