Date: July 30, 2015 (Thursday) Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Venue: The Lounge, 7/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

Presenter: Dr. Duangthip Duangporn, PhD Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)
Title: A randomized clinical trial on arresting dentin caries in preschool children by topical fluorides
Abstract: This study was conducted on 371 preschool children with dental caries in primary teeth. At baseline, they were randomly allocated into: Group 1 – annual application of 30% silver diammine fluoride (SDF) solution; Group 2 – three applications of 30% SDF solution at weekly interval; and Group 3 – three applications of 5% sodium fluoride (NaF) varnish at weekly interval. Follow-up examinations every 6 months were conducted to assess whether the treated caries lesions had become arrested. After 24 months, 316 children (85%) remained. For cavitated carious lesions (ICDAS code 5/6), application of SDF solution, either 3 weekly applications at baseline or annual application, arrested active dentin caries faster than 3 weekly applications of NaF varnish at baseline. However, for established carious lesions (ICDAS code 3/4), the three fluoride application protocols were equally efficient in controlling established carious lesions.

Presenter: Ms. Suen Rita Po Chu, MPhil Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)
Title: Dental situation of institutional residents with intellectual disability in Hong Kong
Abstract: Objectives: The aim of this study is to investigate the oral health of intellectually disabled adults living in institutions in Hong Kong. We will also find out their oral health-related behaviours, and difficulties they encounter when accessing dental services.
Methods: The subjects of this study are the intellectually disabled adults who are currently living in government-subvented institutions in Hong Kong. About 750 subjects will be selected from 16 institutions through systematic sampling from the 96 institutions operated by non-governmental organisations, that contributes at least 400 subjects as the final sample size (C.I. = 95%). After obtaining informed consent, care-givers will complete a questionnaire about the dental care behaviours and problems of their cared subjects on their behalf. Additionally, dental information will also be extracted from the patient record of the outreach dental service.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by at 9:39 am under Dentistry

Date: July 23, 2015 (Thursday)
Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.
Venue: The Lounge, 7/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

Presenter: Mr. Suen Long Kiu Justin, MPhil Candidate

Title: Flavor perception in human brain

Abstract: Flavor perception might be a system far more complicated than we can imagine. For example, we may experience a loss of taste sensation when we block our nose. Indeed, flavor perception is a multisensory integration which may involve taste, smell, tactile, visual and auditory senses. Among different combinations of sensation, the most common one is a combination of taste and smell, which will be mainly focused in this study, stimulated inside or through an oral cavity. The aim of the study is to investigate the human brain response to the interaction between a sour taste and a fruity smell. This presentation will introduce the basic concept of perceiving flavor in neuroscience and some results from the pilot study of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

D 617.64 S72

This case-based clinical text is an exhaustive review of orthodontic problems in the vertical dimension and evidence-based guidelines for successful diagnosis and treatment. A total of 21 cases address dental deep bites, skeletal deep bites, dental open bites, skeletal open bites, and posterior open bites. Each case includes pre-treatment, interim, and posttreatment orthodontic records, as well as references to provide a solid evidence base for decision making. Written with a clinical focus, Orthodontics in the Vertical Dimension is ideal for the practicing orthodontist and makes an excellent resource for residents in pursuit of board certification.



Dental caries: the disease and its clinical management / edited by Ole Fejerskov, Bente Nyvad, and Edwina Kidd.

D 617.6631 D41

In this highly-anticipated new edition, the editors maintain the same focus on high-level coverage of the disease aetiology and process, clinical management best-practice, and wider public health issues connected with dental caries management, including an enhanced focus on the ‘caries control concept’. The aim is to link theory with clinical performance, making prevention, diagnosis and restorative procedures evidence based. The structure of the book has been completely overhauled, with the same coverage streamlined in order to distil information effectively.



Lasers in dentistry: guide for clinical practice / edited by Patricia M. de Freitas, Alyne Simões ; foreword by Marcia Martins Marques.

D 617.67 L343 F86

Lasers have become an increasingly useful tool in conventional dental practice. Their precision and less invasive quality make them an attractive technology in esthetic and pediatric dentistry, oral medicine, and a range of other dental procedures. Lasers in Dentistry: Guide for Clinical Practice is a comprehensive, yet concise and easy-to-use guide to integrating lasers into conventional clinical practice.

The book begins by providing the reader a thorough understanding of how lasers work and their varied effects on oral tissues. Subsequent chapters are organized by procedure type, illustrating common clinical techniques with step-by-step illustrations and case examples. In addition, each chapter provides an overview of the latest research for use in clinical practice. More comprehensive than at atlas yet practical and clinically oriented in its approach, Lasers in Dentistry is an essential tool for practitioners and students looking to broader their skill set in laser dentistry.
