The field of Dentistry is constantly changing and evolving to better suit patient needs. Advancements in Dental Technologies can offer you modern solutions to traditional Dental problems. These technologies mainly help to improve Dental treatments that can be performed in a more efficient: effective and comfortable manner. Take a look at how far dental technologies have come in recent decades: Laser Dentistry, Digital X-Ray Machines, New Gum Procedures, Improved Veneers, No-Needle Aesthesia and many more.
Track 2 : Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Many dentists refer to themselves as "cosmetic dentists" regardless of their specific education, specialty, training, and experience in this field
Track 3 : Forensic dentistry
Forensic dentistry or forensic odontology is the application of dental knowledge to those criminal and civil laws that are enforced by police agencies in a criminal justice system. Forensic dentistry is the proper handling, examination and evaluation of dental evidence, which will be then presented in the interest of justice. This is done using dental records including radiographs, ante-mortem (prior to death) and post-mortem (after death) photographs and DNA
Track 4: Geriatric dentistr
Geriatric dentistry is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of problems associated with age related diseases. The world’s population is currently ageing with the number and proportion of elderly people growing substantially. Between the years of 2000-2005 to 2010-2015 life expectancy at birth rose from 67.2 to 70.8 years. By 2045-2050 it is projected to continue increase to 77 years. This increasing longevity can be majorly attributed to advances in modern medicine and medical technology.
Track 5: Holistic Dentistry
Holistic Dentistry, also known as biological dentistry, takes into account a person’s entire state of physical and emotional health. Holistic dentists use natural therapies (often in combination with conventional ones) to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases of the oral cavity. Holistic dentistry is an alternative approach that focuses on the use of non-toxic restorative materials for dental work, and emphasizes the unrecognized impact that dental toxins and dental infections may have on a person's overall health. While traditional dentistry focuses only on the areas above the neck, holistic dentistry looks at the patient as a whole system and how the mouth relates to the rest of the body.
Track 6: Pediatric dentistry
Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood. Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth.
Track 7: Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist at regular intervals determined by a dentist. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
Track 8: Restorative Dentistry
Restorative Dentistry is the term dental professionals use to explain how they replace missing or damaged teeth. Fillings, crowns (“caps”), bridges and implants are common restorative options. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues. The most common way to treat a cavity is for your dentist to remove the decay and fill the tooth with one of several different materials. These filling materials include gold, porcelain, silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc and copper), tooth-colored plastic or composite resin.
Track 9: Dental Injuries
Dental Injuries are the most common type of Orofacial injury sustained during participation in sports. It mainly includes the prevention and management of athletics-related orofacial injuries and associated oral disease
Track 10: Dental Anesthesia
Dental Anesthesia is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the management of pain through the use of advanced local and general anesthesia techniques. It is the discipline in dentistry that manages pain and anxiety through the use of local anesthesia, sedation, and general anesthesia. Dental Anesthesiology educates graduate, pre-doctoral, and dental hygiene students in the management of pain, fear, and anxiety associated with dental treatment. Dentist anesthesiologists trained to provide the entire spectrum of anesthetic services, which generally range from local anesthesia through general anesthesia, for a wide range of dental and surgical procedures. Faculty research involving dental anesthesiology has focused on the clinical efficacy and safety of anesthetics when used in both healthy and medically-compromised patients
Track 11: Dental Implant & Dentures
A dental Implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn't come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Track 12: Dental Marketing
Marketing is key to the success of any business and dental practices are no exception. For a dental practice to grow, a single dentist should be seeing 24-50 new patients per month. And in order to attract new dental patients, a practice must offer a competitive product at competitive pricing, along with convenient quality services – all backed by a solid dental marketing plan.
Track 13: Dental Materials
Dental Materials should have certain characteristics to be effective in dental health maintenance. Characteristics which are particularly important are safety and compatibility with oral tissues. Dental materials and devices are regulated for safety and efficacy by the FDA. Efficacy can be defined as the ability of a dental material to function as was intended within the oral cavity
Track 14: Dental Nursing
The dental nurse plays an important role in the organization and management of the dental practice, assists the dentist in all aspects of patient treatment and plays a vital role in patient care. The main duties of a dental nurse include infection prevention and control, chair-side assistance, preparation and maintenance of the dental surgery and patient care.
Track 15: Dental Roboties
A dental robot has been created that can perform dental procedures. Robots, the most wonderful invention of human being, have made its way into dentistry. The necessary technologies have been developed and experimented which would help it to be adapted in dentistry. With unmatched precision and ability to work without faetigu, robots are the most useful applications of robotic technology. The main aim of this paper is to review the application of robotics in dentistry
Track 16: Dental tools & Treatment Techniques
The field of dentistry is constantly evolving and changing to best suit patient needs. Dentistry has seen massive improvements with respect to advancement from the traditional techniques to the digital world that has widened the scope of dental treatments and procedures. Digital dentistry tools and techniques used at present include the Laser applications, Dental implants and occlusal analysis, Forensic dentistry, Dental radiography/informatics, Robotic and digital dentistry and Imaging techniques for the craniofacial hard and soft tissues.
Track 17: Advance Dental Reaserch
The Advanced Dental Research (ADR) is defined as the analysis, detection, prevention and treatment for both surgical and nonsurgical diseases, conditions of the oral cavity, and maxillofacial area. Advanced Dental Technology provides an advanced level of education in dental technology and related research in dental science. Some of the latest technologies are advanced dental ceramics, implantology and CAD/CAM technology. It helps to understand the relationships between research and clinical application, and the resulting limitation
Track 18: Nanodentistry & Technology
Nanodentistry is a branch that involves the maintenance and up gradation of oral health care’s yet more precise by employing nanomaterials, biotechnology, including tissue engineering & ultimately dental nanorobotics. Recent developments of nanoparticles and nanotubes in operative dentistry, endodontics, periodontal management, has played a growing role in the enhancement of dental industry. Nanomaterials and nanoparticles are cornerstones of innovative dental devices used for drug discovery and delivery, discovery of biomarkers, and molecular diagnostics. Nanodentistry aims to manipulate and fine tune particle to create unique with novel properties and advances in dentistry
Track 19: Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
It deals with the treatment of issues related to hard and soft tissues of face, mouth and jaws. Maxillofacial surgeons are trained on Dentistry, Surgery and General Medicine. These specialists set a strong base for cosmetic and restorative dental work which includes placing of dental implants. Moreover they also provide medication for obstructive sleep apnea, facial pain and infection, biopsies and removal of lesions, and diagnosis and treatment of some oral cancers.
Track 20: Oral Cancer
Oral cancer, otherwise called mouth cancer, is a sort of head and neck cancer and is any Carcinogenic tissue development situated in the oral cavity. It shows up as a development or sore in the mouth that does not leave. Oral disease, which embodies expansion of the lips, tongue, cheeks, the floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, and pharynx (throat), can be severe if not investigated and medicated initially. Oral cancer is dealt with a similar way numerous different tumors are treated with surgery to expel the harmful development, followed by therapy as well as chemotherapy (drug medications) to destroy any residual cancer cells
Track 21: Oral Medicine & Dental Health
Oral Medicine & Dental Health is the fundamental part of your overall health and well-being. Poor oral hygiene can lead to bad breath, tooth decay, dental cavities and gum disease, and has also been linked to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Taking good care of your mouth, maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment. Understand the importance of oral hygiene habits — such as brushing, flossing, and limiting your sugar intake — the easier it’ll be to avoid costly dental procedures and long-term health issues.
