Upcoming Workshops

Upcoming Workshops

We regularly conduct Practical Hands-On Dentistry Workshops. As we are building the new training Centre, the dates are yet to be announced for 2106.

Our upcoming workshops include:

Saving Teeth – Alternatives to Extraction – (All Day: 9.00 – 4.00pm Cost $825 Dates: TBA (Whole Day – 8.30 – 4.00)

(For Veterinarians)

Tooth pathology limited to the crown

  • Uncomplicated crown fractures

Treatment to remove sharp edges, improve cosmetic appearance, restore anatomy of the tooth and control pulpal inflammation.

  • Enamel and dentine exposed – pulp NOT exposed (T/FX/UCF).

Treatment to remove sharp edges, improve cosmetic appearance, restore tooth anatomy, control pulpal inflammation and prevent future bacterial pulpitis.

  • Enamel hypoplasia or carious lesion.

Treatment to improve cosmetic appearance, restore tooth anatomy, control pulpal inflammation and prevent future bacterial pulpitis.

  • Complicated crown fractures – pulp exposure (T/FX/CCF).

An endodontic procedure is required to treat the tooth.

Treatment: Exposure <48hrs – direct pulp capping. Greater than 48hrs – Root canal (see separate workshop below)

Periodontally affected tooth

  • Increased periodontal sulcus depth or pocket formation

Treatment: supra gingival cleaning, subgingival cleaning- curettage, restoration of anatomy, application of perioceutical.(Local Delivery System -Antibiotic LDS-AB)

  • Gingival recession

Treatment: restoration of smooth surfaces and anatomy, removal of plaque and debris seal dentinal tubules. Two methods restoration of the exposed tooth or periodontal surgery.

Linguoversion of mandibular canine teeth (304,404)

Treatment: Removal of mal-occluded deciduous canines. Application of composite crown extensions to emerging adult dentition. restoration of crown once teeth appropriately positioned and sufficiently erupted.

Radiology (1/2 Day) 8.30am – 11.30pm (3 hours)

Cost $325 Dates: TBA

(Veterinarians and Nurses)

Since the majority of companion animals will suffer dental pathology including periodontal disease, fractures of their teeth, odontoclastic resorptive lesions, attrition, endodontic disease, recognition and treatment of oral disease is very important. Radiology is one of the most important diagnostic tools available to the veterinarian and nurse. At this course you will greatly improve your radiographic dental skills as we cover: equipment / materials, indications for radiology, positioning for all standard views, developing and identification of normal vs. abnormal structures.

Canine Analgesia & Oral Surgery Extractions in the Canine (1/2 Day) 1pm – 5pm (4 hours)

Cost $625 Dates: TBA

(Veterinarians only)

A number of companion animals do not receive adequate periodontal homecare and suffer advanced dental pathology that requires oral surgery including extractions. A large number of fractures are not able to be saved by endodontic treatment and require extraction, so analgesia and an easy, less traumatic tooth removal is ideal. At this course you will greatly improve your dental skills as we cover: Analgesia and use of local analgesic agents, anatomy for nerve blocks, simple and surgical extractions, raising a muco-gingival flap, osteotomy techniques, tooth sectioning, and closure of oro-nasal fistulas.

Feline Analgesia & Oral Surgery Extractions in the Feline (1/2 Day) 1pm – 5pm (4 hours)

Cost $625 Dates: TBA

Endodontics (Root Canals and Pulp Capping) (3 day: 9.00 – 4.00)

Cost $2,975 / Dates: TBA

(Veterinarians and bring a nurse to assist)

Endodontics or the treatment of the tooth’s root and pulp canals, gives the veterinarian disease management options other than extraction. The tooth root comprises a significant portion of the jaw integrity and extraction may not be only difficult but leads to a weakened jaw bone. Tooth preservation enables the animal to maintain its dentition and prevents further injury. Whether providing endodontic treatment for a slab fracture of the maxillary carnassial tooth or a canine tooth, endodontic therapy gives the veterinarian important treatment options. Radiology forms a major component in the endodontic discipline and attendance at the radiology course is a pre-requisite. This course provides diagnosis of tooth pathology and the delivery of treatment will discuss the following: Indications and techniques and procedures for successful vital pulpectomies (direct pulp capping), indications for root canal therapy, equipment and materials required for root canal therapy, debridement and obturation techniques, restorative materials and their usage as applied to endodontic access sites.

 

Where are Workshops held?

Generally Workshops are conducted at our Veterinary Clinic 81 Belgrave-Hallam Road, Hallam, Victoria, Australia.

However, Workshops can be held at any location with prior agreement.
