Dentistry Update to Address Implications of Dental Complications

For many people, dental procedures may be a nerve-wracking experience. While advancements in dentistry have led to relatively painless procedures, according to a study published in the Journal of Behaviour Research & Therapy, many still tend to associate dental treatment with feelings of pain or discomfort. Thus, the fairly common occurrence of post-treatment complications, such as infections or bleeding, can add additional challenges for both patients and practitioners. Learning how to better prevent and treat common dental complications can help ensure smoother procedures and a better dental experience for all parties. The theme of this year’s Update in Dentistry conference is “Implications of Dental Complications: Staying out of Trouble”. At this conference, participants will learn about the causes of numerous dental complications, how to avoid them, and ways to treat these problems should they arise. Topics will include:
  • Trigeminal nerve injury & management
  • Fixed Prosthodontic Complications
  • Oral Surgical Complications
  • Avoiding mishaps in endodontics
  • Avoiding complications in medically complex patients
The 2nd Update in Dentistry will take place on May 11, 2018, at the Chestnut Residence and Conference Centre in Toronto. General dentists, dental specialists, dental hygienists, and dental hospital residents are encouraged to attend.
