Workshop Leader: Dr Shimon Friedman, Professor Emeritus at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto
Venue: Scottish Event Campus (SEC)
Price: Full Delegate – £200.00, Postgraduate – £130.00
Duration: 9.30am to 1pm (3.5 hour session, to include a short break and time for discussion.)

When orthograde retreatment and apical microsurgery are considered unfeasible, when they fail to resolve persistent endodontic infection, or when the remaining tooth structure is deemed non-restorable, the tooth is usually extracted and replaced with an implant or another prosthetic device.  Alternatively, when clinical conditions permit, the tooth can be extracted, manipulated extra-orally and replanted (Intentional Replantation, Surgical Extrusion), or a non-strategic tooth can be transplanted into the socket of the extracted tooth (Autogenous Transplantation). These seemingly radical but rather simple procedures offer predictably good outcomes when the biologic principles of tooth replantation are respected.

This course will present the procedures of Intentional Replantation/Transplantation in a contemporary context, as predictable means for retaining otherwise “untreatable” teeth to greatly benefit patients.  Strict guidelines for case selection, a step-by-step protocol and a variety of clinical applications will be outlined and illustrated with typical cases.  Treatment outcomes will also be highlighted for the various clinical applications of both procedures, as reported in case reports, cohort studies and systematic reviews.

Learning objectives: Upon completion, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the procedural guidelines and steps for Intentional Replantation, Surgical Extrusion and Autogenous Transplantation aimed to prevent external root resorption and persistent infection.
  • Outline the indications for Intentional Replantation and Autogenous Transplantation.

Summarize the long-term outcomes of Intentional Replantation, Surgical Extrusion and Autogenous Transplantation .

Workshop Leader: Dr Thuan Dao, University of Toronto
Venue: Scottish Event Campus (SEC)
Price: Full Delegate – £200.00, Postgraduate – £130.00
Duration: 1.30pm to 5pm (3.5 hours with a short refreshment break)

Although the understanding of the physiology and mechanisms of chronic orofacial pain has vastly improved, the availability of diagnostic tools such as laboratory, radiological and other imaging tests remains limited. In addition, pain can occur in the absence of noxious stimuli and persist beyond the usual healing time. The poor localization of pain often leads to misdiagnosis of its source and mistreatment, including sequential endodontic treatment or extraction of “innocent” teeth without significant improvement in patient’s comfort. 

The first part of this session will focus on the clinical manifestations, mechanisms and pharmacological (non-dental) management of persistent neuropathic pain following dental treatment. This knowledge is instrumental for the understanding of the second part, where differential diagnosis will be discussed. Clinical scenarios will be presented to illustrate how information obtained from patients through structured interview will lead the path to diagnosis, while the physical examination mainly confirms or refutes the provisional diagnosis.

Course Director:
Dr. Thuan Dao obtained her DMD, MSc (Neuroscience), and PhD (Biomedical Sciences) at the University of Montreal, and her Diploma in Prosthodontics at the University of Toronto. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and Associate Professor Emerita at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto.

Dr. Dao had served a President of the Neuroscience Group of the International Association of Dental Research, as a Councilor in Prosthodontics for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, and as a member of the Centre for the Study of Pain at the University of Toronto. 

Dr. Dao’s research and publications have focused mainly on the etiology and management of orofacial pain and sensory disorders. She has lectured extensively on pain-related topics, nationally and internationally, to both researchers and clinicians. With her strong background in Neuroscience, her expertise in clinical trials, and many years of private practice limited to pain management, Dr. Dao is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between basic sciences and the clinics. Her ability to clearly explain complex science to clinicians and to relate it to everyday practice has met with wide acclaim.

Workshop Leader: Dr Yoshitsugu Terauchi D.D.S., PhD
Venue: Scottish Event Campus (SEC)
Price: Full Delegate – £475.00, Post-graduate – £275.00 
Duration: 10am to 4.30pm (includes lunch)

An instrument fracture is very frustrating. Instrument retrieval is even more frustrating and considered more challenging than any other procedure in endodontics. The literature shows that when NiTi instruments fracture, they mostly fracture in the apical one-third or beyond a curve of the canal because of the superelastic property of NiTi instruments. Although the success rates of instrument retrieval with ultrasonics alone are very high in the range of 80 to 90 %, ultrasonic retrieval attempts are deemed to be unpredictable in terms of time and dentin sacrifice. It is also essential to maintain as much tooth structure as possible to prevent root fracture and perforation. In the workshop unique techniques for instrument retrieval using a new “TFRK” will be proposed and discussed to make the instrument retrieval highly predictable and minimize dentin sacrifice. The proposed instrument retrieval technique is also supported by a recent study published from JOE because of predictability and higher success rates compared to the traditional techniques.
