Dental foundation training : the essential handbook for foundation dentists / Amit Rai ; foreword by Raj Rattan.

D 617.6073 R1

Dental Foundation Training is a highly practical resource for all dentists interested in Foundation Training. It walks both current and prospective foundation dentists through the realities and unknowns of the year.
Easy-to-read and comprehensive, it includes an essential survival guide and offers a detailed snapshot of the various directions available in the career crossroads which await after Foundation Training.



Fractured instrument removal : a systematic approach : multimedia compendium / Michael Arnold.

D 617.6262 A75  (Includes 1 DVD)

Instrument breakage is a possible complication of mechanical preparation and widening of complex root canal systems. The more difficult the endodontic treatment, the greater the risk of instrument fracture. Recent studies show that more than 90% of all broken endodontic instruments can be successfully removed without surgical intervention. However, before undertaking a removal attempt, clinicians must know how to determine when a broken instrument should be removed and when it should be left in place; the appropriate methods for broken instrument removal; and which instruments should be used for each level of difficulty. This DVD provides a simple, step-by-step strategy to instrument removal that is illustrated by numerous images and clinical case demonstrations. This systematic approach can help significantly improve the odds of successfully removing broken endodontic instruments from the root canal. The accompanying booklet includes insightful articles on minimally invasive fragment removal using CBCT as well as systematic approach to orthograde removal of fractured instruments.

Dental Research Seminar

Published by under Dentistry

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 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.
