Details

The 33rd Annual Charles A. Sweet, Sr. Pediatric Dentistry Memorial Lecture will feature Dr. N. Sue Seale presenting 'Pediatric Pulp Therapy.' This two-part seminar series will focus on evidence-based approaches to pulpal management of the cariously involved primary and immature permanent tooth. In the first segment, Dr. Seale will review he latest information about the caries lesion of enamel and dentin and how the pulpal response to the caries lesion impacts diagnosis and treatment decision. Evidence supporting approaches appropriate for the vital and nonvital primary dentition will be presented, including indications, techniques/medicaments, and outcomes for direct pulp capping (DPC), indirect pulp treatment (IPT), pulpotomy, pulpectomy, and lesion sterilization tissue repair (LSTR).

 

In the second segment, management of the cariously involved immature permanent molar will be emphasized. Increasing attention is being paid to the techniques of indirect pulp treatment in permanent teeth called partial caries removal and step-wise excavation. They provide more conservative approaches to caries management in the immature permanent molar, Recent best evidence supporting these techniques as well as traditional, one appointment indirect pulp capping technique will be reviewed.
