      Atlas of operative maxillofacial trauma surgery: primary repair of facial injuries / Michael Perry, Simon Holmes, editors.

      D 617.52059 A881

       

      The idea behind this book is to produce a fully comprehensive and highly illustrated “how to” technical reference manual, demonstrating surgical procedures in a step by step manner. This book also covers assessment and investigations, but focuses on the surgical and non-surgical management of all aspect of maxillofacial trauma.

      It will include most, if not all, of the surgical approaches and techniques used, for all injuries. This volume includes emergency procedures and the various techniques in repair of fractures and soft tissue injuries, from the simple to the complex. Each step is illustrated photographically or with line diagrams, with explanatory text.

      This will enable surgical trainees and surgeons with limited trauma experience to understand how and why any particular procedure is undertaken.

      Dental Research Seminar

      Published by at 11:49 am under Dentistry
      Tags:

      Date: January 29, 2015 (Thursday)

      Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

      Venue: Lecture Theatre II, G/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

       

      Presenter: Dr. Lee Hiu Man Gillian, PhD Candidate (12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.)

      Title: Clinical guideline for caries prevention and management by caries risk assessment for pre-school children in Hong Kong

       

      Abstract: Dental treatment received by pre-school children with dental caries in Hong Kong is sub-optimal. Considerable variations in their care also exist among dental practitioners. Clinical practice guidelines assist decision making in clinical practice to produce optimal, evidence-based and equitable patient care. Traditional guideline development requires substantial amount of time, expertise and resources. A clinical practice guideline for caries prevention and management by caries risk assessment for pre-school children in Hong Kong was developed using ADAPTE process and internet-based Delphi consensus with the collaboration of the Hong Kong Society of Paediatric Dentistry. The systematic approach to develop this consensus evidence-based clinical guideline will be described. The guideline recommendations will also be presented.

       

      Presenter: Mr. Jiang Shan, PhD Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)

      Title: Motivation interviewing in improving oral health of preschool children: a randomized controlled trial

       

      Abstract: Dental caries (tooth decay) is highly prevalent and is largely attributable to unhealthy behaviors. Prevailing health education (HE) fails to achieve sustainable behavioral changes. This randomized controlled trial incorporates motivational interviewing (MI) and interactive caries risk assessment (RA) into HE and investigates the effectiveness of HE, HE+MI, and HE+MI+RA in changing oral health behaviors and preventing caries in preschool children. Six hundred and ninety-two (692) children with unfavorable oral health behaviors (insufficient toothbrushing and/or frequent snacking) were randomly assigned to 3 groups. Respective interventions were delivered to parents. Preliminary (6-month) findings showed significantly greater improvements in parental efficacy and children’s behaviors in HE+MI and HE+MI+RA groups, as compared with HE group.

      Title: Use of sucrose substitutes in the prevention of dental caries

       

      Abstract: The important role sucrose plays in the initiation and progression of dental caries has been shown in laboratory and human studies. A reasonable approach to prevent caries is to substitute sucrose in food and drinks with less cariogenic sweetening substances. At present, there are a number of sucrose substitutes in the market which are non- or low-cariogenic. Isomaltulose (alpha-D-glucopyranosyl-1, 6-fructose) is a natural sugar with a sweet taste which can provide energy and does not induce side effects, such as diarrhea, even when ingested in large quantity. It cannot be easily fermented by plaque bacteria and may be less cariogenic than sucrose. Findings of the series of laboratory studies we have conducted to investigate the cariogenicity of isomaltulose will be reported.

       

      Presenter: Miss Wen Weiye, PhD Candidate (1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.)

      Title: Family-centered oral health promotion for new parents and their infants: a randomized controlled trial

       

      Abstract: Early childhood caries (ECC) is a global health problem that causes pain and infection to the children affected. It is a common disease among preschool children in Hong Kong (31%-42% for 3-5 years old). ECC is found to be associated with a higher risk of dental caries in the primary and permanent dentitions and has negative effects on the nutrition, growth and development and general health of the children affected. We are now conducting a 4-year randomized controlled trial of family-centered oral health promotion for new parents aiming to increase the proportion of parents brushing their infants’ teeth, establishing proper feeding and dietary habits, reducing the transfer of MS (the main kind of cariogenic bacteria) from the parents to their infants and then reducing the risk of early childhood caries (ECC) at 3 years. We also aim to improve the oral hygiene status of the new parents and prevention of oral diseases among themselves.
