Track 1: Basic Dental and Oral Health
Dentistry is commonly defined as the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and or treatment (nonsurgical, surgical or related procedures) of dental, oral cavity, maxillofacial area diseases or conditions and the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human being. Studies and advances in some dental branches such as Restorative dentistry, Veterinary dentistry, and Cosmetic dentistry/Aesthetic dentistry encouraged the researchers to expand and explore the potential for regenerating useful teeth. Sedation in dental practice refers to the use of chemical or the pharmacological agents to calm and relax the patient prior and during a dental appointments and treatments.
Track 2: Endodontic and Hypnodontics
The term Endodontics is defined as the practical implementation of the theory of endodontology.The diagnosis and treatment of odontogenic pain play a major role in endodontic treatment. Peri-radicular and intra-radicular tissue lesions (trauma) and disease are also an integral part of the treatment spectrum. Unwanted unconscious behaviors show up in all fields of health care. In dentistry, they present themselves in the form of fears and phobias, dental anxiety, teeth grinding/clenching, insomnia, or undesired habits like smoking and nail biting, to name a few. Hypodontics deals with eliminating the symptoms of these conditions and in many cases the conditions themselves.
Track 3: Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the alignment of the teeth and the dental arches: the maxilla and the mandible. The practice of this specialty includes diagnosis, prevention, interception, and correction of malocclusion and other abnormalities of the developing or mature orofacial structures.
Track 4: Dental Surgeries & Innovations
Dental Surgery is surgery of the teeth and jaw bones. There are several reasons why people choose and undergo a dental surgery. Dental surgery is directly related to the dental and oral health and care. There are different types of dental surgeries. The dental surgeries are performed by a qualified Dental and Oral health Surgeon. Root canal treatments and Extractions also come under dental surgeries; these however can be conducted by a dentist in a clinic.
Track 5: Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics
Restorative Dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the oral cavity, the teeth and supporting structures. It includes the rehabilitation of the teeth and the oral cavity to functional, psychological and aesthetic requirements of the individual patient, including the co-ordination of multi-professional working to achieve these objectives. Restorative dentistry encompasses the dental specialties of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics (fixed and removable) and its foundation is based upon the interaction of these specialties in cases requiring complex, multi-faceted care.
Track 6: Dental Implants
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 7: Pediatric Dentistry and Dental Nursing
Pediatric Dentistry is defined as the practice, teaching and research in comprehensive preventative and therapeutic oral health care of children from birth through adolescence. It is based on basic knowledge from odonatological, medical and behavioral sciences that are applied to the unique situation of the developing child and young person. Pediatric Dentistry is constantly expanding and now includes such areas as early identification of children suspected to suffer from syndromes and of children suspected to suffer from child maltreatment.
Track 8: Dental Tools and 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 9: Oral Diseases and Treatments
Oral diseases ranging from cavities to cancer are all serious threats to your oral health. Your oral health is an important part of your overall health. Research shows there may be a link between oral disease and other health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke as well as pre-term and low-birth-weight babies. Left unchecked, hidden threats to your oral health — such as gum disease, root cavities and infections and oral cancer — can lead to severe pain, loss of teeth and serious health implications.
Track 10: Dental Marketing
Dental Marketing is the integration of marketing strategies in the field of dentistry to help Dental Professionals harness the full potential of their practice. It involves the use of tools and techniques of marketing to achieve a certain degree of publicity and broaden the reach of the practice and the practitioner. The conference is a rare opportunity for all individuals of the dental community to upgrade their know-how of the latest marketing strategies.
Track 11: Sports Dentistry
Sports dentistry is one of the most recent and upcoming field in dentistry. It mainly includes the prevention and management of athletics-related orofacial injuries and associated oral diseases. The sports or team dentist assists athletes in the prevention, treatment, and diagnosis of oral injuries. The most significant aspect in preventing sports-related orofacial injuries is wearing basic protective devices such as properly-fitting helmets, face masks and/or mouth guards. Dental injuries are the most common type of orofacial injury sustained during participation in sports. Many athletes are not aware of the health implications of a traumatic injury to the mouth or of the potential for incurring severe head and orofacial injuries while playing. The dentist can play an imperative role in informing athletes, coaches and patients about the importance of preventing orofacial injuries in sports.
Track 12: Holistic dentistry
Holistic dentistry, also referred to as biologic 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 13: Nanodentistry and Technology
Nanodentistry is a branch that involves the maintenance and upgradation of oral health care 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.
