Pediatric Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency is organized by Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and will be held from April 26 - 28, 2019 at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 34 CE Credit hours. Description: Expanding on the topics explored during our successful Pediatric Dental Sleep Medicine Symposium last fall, we are trilled to announce a new addition to our Dental Sleep Medicine programing, the Pediatric Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-Residency! To anyone treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients and pediatric patients, this burgeoning field is of the utmost importance. Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is increasingly recognized as a chronic disorder of dysfunctional breathing during sleep in children and can range from habitual snoring to OSA. The spectrum of SDB can result in adverse neurocognitive consequences from sleep fragmentation and intermittent hypoxemia, as well as adverse craniofacial maldevelopment, abnormal breathing patterns, learning difficulties, ADD and ADHD, poor academic performances, bed wetting, excessive sleepiness, and behavioral, mood, and anxiety disorders. Despite these alarming facts, research has shown that children are suboptimally screened for SDB in their routine physical and dental check-ups, making it difficult to initiate the early intervention strategies necessary to improve children's overall quality of life and learning whilst preventing the development of significant and lasting morbidity. Designed to bring awareness to the importance of early intervention in treating pediatric SDB, this first-of-its-kind program will help dentists understand the basics of normal sleep maturation, respiratory physiology, and craniofacial development throughout childhood. A host of treatment options will be presented by a team of multidisciplinary instructors representing medical, surgical, and dental backgrounds. Participants will become familiar with various sleep disorders in children and adolescents and review cutting-edge research and techniques in evaluation and treatment of SDB in children. Learning Objectives: • Understand the dentist's role in screening for pediatric SDB • Learn screening protocols and the spectrum of available therapies • Review normal sleep maturation, respiratory physiology, and upper airway development • Learn the consequences of Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) in children • Overview of pediatric polysomnogram and other diagnostic tests in children • Comprehend the various treatment options including medical, dental, and surgical • Overview of craniofacial growth modification treatment in children • Comprehend the role of alternative/abjuvant treatment options • Role of oral appliances and customizing treatment options • Comprehend the approach of myofunctional therapy • Understand tongue-tie and frenuloplasty techniques

Enhancing Restorative Results: Soft Tissue Grafting by Tufts University School of Dental Medicine 2019
Apr 27, 2019 | CE 7.00 | USD $495 | Boston, Massachusetts
Enhancing Restorative Results: Soft Tissue Grafting is organized by Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and will be held on April 27, 2019 at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7 CE Credits. Description Learn evidence-based solutions for the soft tissue challenges you face on a daily basis, and how to cover those exposed roots and predictably stop recession. In this workshop, methods will be illustrated to solve those problems and enhance your restorative results. Gain peace of mind knowing the gingiva stays in place by the margins of newly placed esthetic crowns and that you know when it is appropriate or necessary to refer to a specialist! Participants will experience an in-depth exploration of the concepts and practical applications for both Free Gingival and Connective Tissue Grafts. • Gingival Grafts create zones of attached gingiva where neither root coverage nor esthetics is factored. They provide a predictable way to stop recession from progressing. • Connective Tissue Grafts are useful for total root coverage in cases of severe recession, especially in the maxilla where esthetics are important. This workshop is for dentists who want to offer soft tissue grafting or learn more about enhancing esthetic restorative results. The full day course offers the opportunity to practice both procedures on pig jaws, as well as many case illustrations and two surgical videos of the grafting procedure. Please note that taking this course is not a guarantee of competency, as this is a short-term course meant to introduce providers to these procedures. Gain the peace of mind that you are current in your treatment planning choice, and that you know when it is appropriate or necessary to refer to a specialist! Please note that taking this course is not a guarantee of competency, as this is a short-term course meant to introduce providers to these procedures. Learning Objectives: • Review the diagnostic criteria for each graft • Learn how to gain root coverage • Understand how to predictably stop recession, or to prevent it in the esthetic zone • Practice step-by-step harvesting, graft placement and suturing • Practice step-by-step use of specialized instruments
