Maryland Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (MDAPD) Annual All Day Meeting is organized by Maryland Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (MDAPD) and will be held on Oct 25, 2019 at Turf Valley Resort, Ellicott City, Maryland, United States of America. Accreditation: 6 Credit Hours Course Description: Creating Pediatric Patient Smiles: Restorative Update This course reviews the diverse etiologies of dental diseases associated with restorative and esthetic issues in the primary dentition and early mixed dentitions. Dental caries is the most common etiology causing tooth destruction and esthetic concerns in the pediatric patient but trauma and developmental defects of the dentition also are common. A variety of materials and restorative approaches are available that can be used to manage dental destruction and ensuing esthetic issues. Primary anterior teeth can be crowned using a variety of materials such as composite resins or resin modified glass ionomers. Stainless steel crowns with resin facings offer another restorative option and zirconia crowns are the latest and most esthetic restorative material. Pros and cons of each will be discussed and cases presented to illustrate both technique and clinical outcome. A recent controversial restorative approach is the non-surgical restorative approach referred to as the Hall Crown Technique will be presented. Learning Objectives: • Be familiar with materials and techniques available to restore primary teeth • Understand the rationale for selecting different restorative approaches and materials for treating primary teeth. • Be familiar with the evidence supporting the use of different materials and techniques for restoring primary teeth Developmental Defects of Teeth: Diagnosis and Management of the Good, Bad and Ugly The development of the dentition is under strict molecular control and there are thousands of genes involved in tooth formation. In addition to the hundreds of genetically associated developmental dental defects there are over 100 known environmental causes of developmental dental defects. Abnormal development can result in deviation is tooth number, size, shape, color and/or composition. While many of the conditions that cause these dental defects are rare, when taken together it is likely that clinicians will face patients presenting with developmental dental defects. Diagnosis and management of these diverse conditions is challenging and treatment should be predicated on understanding how the dental tissues are altered. Additionally there are new therapies becoming available for several developmental defects of the dentition including hypophosphatasia and X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets making establishment of a diagnosis more important than ever. Learning Objectives: • Be familiar with the genetic and environmental causes of developmental defects of teeth. • Understand the psychosocial impact associated with developmental dental defects • Be familiar with different approaches to restore the dentition of the pediatric patient and manage esthetic issues. • Be familiar with new molecular therapeutic approaches for managing hereditary developmental dental defects. Topics are: "Creating Pediatric Patient Smiles: Restorative Update" and "Developmental Defects of Teeth: Diagnosis and Management of the Good, Bad and Ugly".
