Morning Study Day

  Primary Tutor Secondary Tutor Room  

Rodents and Lagomorphs selected dental procedures

Loic Legendre Ira Luskin 1

This laboratory is designed to acquaint the participant with the common dental conditions seen in rabbits and rodents. It will demonstrate the instruments one must acquire if planning to work with these species. The various common dental procedures, such as occlusal equilibration, intraoral extractions, extraoral extractions, abscess treatments will be demonstrated and practised.

Full crown and veneer preparations

Kipp Wingo Patrick Vall 2

Participitants will be introduced to the art of preparing a tooth for a full veneer crown restoation.

The class will be taught by Drs. Kipp Wingo and Patrick Vall.  Both are diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Dentistry.

Temporary crown elongation technique

Sigbjorn Storli Hanna Kortegaard 3 Linguoverted mandibular canine teeth in dogs is the most frequent malocclusion which require intervention. Consequences of not treating affected animals may lead to oral pain, discomfort, indentation in the palate, attrition, periodontitis, oronasal fistula and more. In this lab the participants will learn how to treat linguoverted mandibular canines with temporary crown extensions in the mean of an orthodontic device, and its limitations

Endodontic treatment basics: access and manual debridement

Cedric Tutt Philippe Roux 4

This workshop will describe and demonstrate and upskill veterinarians in the access to the root canals of commonly treated teeth in the dog. Delegates will also be assisted in learning the techniques of caanal debridement, shaping, flushing, disinfection, removal of the smear layer, final flushing and drying of the canals in preparation for obturation.

Afternoon Study Day


Management of mandibular/maxillary fracture repair in cats

Peter Stroem Andrew Perry 4

The participant will learn surgical principles and management techniques for certain maxillofacial fractures in cats. The attendee will get the chance to perform a pharyngotomy, learn of its uses, advantages and disadvantages.  Secondly the attendee will receive an introduction to minimally invasive/non-invasive repair of maxillofacial fractures and restoration of skeletal and dental occlusion in cats. The attendee will receive a hands-on introduction to fixation of the maxillas and mandibles (maxillomandibular fixation (MMF)) and provide mandibular fracture stabilization while avoiding iatrogenic complications, through the use of a reinforced intraoral mandibular splint.

Caudal maxillectomy

Loic Legendre Allesandro diSimoi 3

This laboratory is designed to demonstrate to the participants three approaches to the caudal maxilla that may be employed when dealing with mass removal in this area. The laboratory will cover in detail the important anatomy landmarks that the participant must be cognisant of when performing such procedures.

Periodontal Flap surgery

Dea Bonello Gerhard Putter 1

The primary etiologic agents in periodontitis is bacterial plaque. The most important aspect of periodontal therapy is removal of plaque and calculus from tooth surfaces exposed by periodontal disease, and of pocket epithelium (biological approach). Histological studies have demonstrated that the healing of the dento-epithelial junction following subgingival

plaque control resulted in the formation of a long junctional epithelium in areas previously covered with subgingival plaque and calculus.

Complete sub gingival calculus removal is technically very difficult. It has been demonstrated that in pockets less than 3 mm, success could be expected, but the chances of failure increased in 3 to 5 mm pockets, while with probing depths greater than 5 mm, the chances of failure dominated.

Periodontal flaps for access provide a means for greater reduction of residual calculus. Periodontal flaps for access provide a means to achieve more tooth surfaces free of calculus in pockets >3 mm. The % of residual calculus is related to probing depth, despite the treatment approach.

Teeth that have lost bone support or periodontal attachment, as a result of periodontal disease, become loose due to secondary occlusal trauma (normal biting forces applied to a weakened tooth).The approach to treatment of loose teeth is also mechanical. Temporary splinting options may provide a longer life to teeth, but they require excellent oral home

care.The long term prognosis of the teeth must be considered before deciding

upon treatment options.

Surgical endodontics

Ira Luskin Margherita Gracis 2 Surgical Endodontics: A brief powerpoint giving the indications for surgical root canals and the techniques required for the laboratory will be presented with video clips. We will create the approaches to perform apicoectomies and than the retrograde filling techniques on the maxillary and mandibular canines and the maxillary fourth premolar
