SYNOPSIS ON SYMPOSIUM AND WORKSHOP – “CREATE THE BARRIER” REGENERATION AND APEXIFICATION USING BIOMIMETIC MATERIALS
The Department of Paediatric and Preventive dentistry, Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals has proudly show cased a 2 day symposium and workshop program on “CREATE THE BARRIER”. It highlightedand recent advances in endodontics on 31st August & 1st September 2017.The CDE programme was approved by the Tamil Nadu state dental council, accredited with 9 CDE credit points. The scientific lectures, live demonstration on patients and hands-on were truly enriched and mesmerizing which provided all our young budding pedodontists a keen insight into the topics. The first day of the symposium was marked by the lectures of eminent speakers . Dr. Deepa Gurunathan gave an introductory talk about Tissue engineering which paved the way for easy understanding of regeneration. Talk by Dr.Jai Ganesh on Stem cells was interesting based on multiple choice questions and making the audience aware of the concept from Known to Unknown. Dr.M.S Nivedhitha enlightened on Scaffolds used in regeneration of pulp . Dr.Geomani discussed the various practical issues involved in the usage of Platelet Rich Plasma for reggeneration which was very much informative to avoid medico legal cases. Followed by the lecture was the live demonstration on patient using PRF and hands on by all the participants using PRF. Participants' were thrilled and excited to view a live demonstration of a tooth treated by regeneration. In addition, each participant were given PRF to be handled and placed in extracted tooth guided by Dr.G.Deepa and Dr. Madhusudhan Vasantharajan which has given them the confidence to treat a patient. The second day of the program sphere headedby Dr. Madhusudhan Vasantharajangave an in-detailed explanation of Apexification using biomemietic materials . Dr. Sihivahanan's explanation on recent trends scope of research, approach of exam questions on regeneration provided our participants a glimpse of future trends and ability to apply the obtained knowledge. Shortly thereafter it was followed by live demonstration by Dr. Madhusudhan Vasantharajanon patient using MTA .Dr.G.Deepa and Dr. Madhusudhan Vasantharajan played a vital roleto help the students handle the biomimetic materials with ease. At the end of the symposium the participants were confident to perform regeneration and apexification using biomimetic materials and assured to treat patients using the techniques learnt.
