Capsule Workshop 1


Splinting is the joining of two or more teeth with a rigid unit by means of fixed or removable restorations.
Splint is an appliance used for immobilization of injured or diseased parts.
Splints are used to immobilize traumatized teeth that have suffered damage in their support structures, and preventing their constant movement. The literature has shown that in several periodontal conditions and after replantation it is necessary to use splints in order to immobilize the teeth during the initial period, which is essential for the repair of periodontal ligament. The use of semi-rigid splint is more indicated than the rigid one (substitutive resorption or ankylosis ) and its influence on the process of healing. Thus, the aim of this hands on course is to teach the application of semi rigid splint with the anterior teeth.

Capsule Workshop 2     

Pack a Punch and Diagnose Oral Cancer : Punch Biopsy

Oral cancer is a deadly killer across the globe. In the US alone, numbers suggest that 49,750 Americans will have oral cancer this year, with over 9750 succumbing to the disease. That is a scary one death an hour! These numbers are almost ten folds more in India, which accounts for around 30% of the cases globally.

Why is the death rate so high with oral cancer?
Often due to a late discovery. Thus, early diagnosis is the key to an effective treatment and saving lives. However, most dentists are not aware of the various diagnostic modalities that screen for oral cancer. The punch biopsy is a safe and effective tool that you can use in your clinic with minimal risk to screen for a potential case of oral cancer. This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to know when to go for the punch biopsy and how to go about the procedure. You will also have an opportunity to see a live demo of the punch biopsy and perform it yourself on a model.

Gingivectomy is a time-honored procedure for removal of gingiva. The indications range from access to esthetics. The procedure is the total removal of a portion of the gingiva from in and around a tooth or teeth in order to treat periodontal disease or to lengthen the height or width of a tooth or a section of teeth. This workshop intends to demonstrate and give a hands on experience of a simple gingivectomy procedure.

Capsule Workshop 4

Resin Modified Glass Ionomer Cement in Paediatric Dental Practice

Glass ionomer cements (GICs) are clinically efficient dental materials that have certain unique properties that make them useful as restorative and luting materials. But its certain disadvantages led to the development of Resin-modified glass ionomers (RMGIC). Unlike early glass ionomers, the new cement systems are easy and practical to use. Resin-modified glass ionomer cements not only have improved physical characteristics, but the photopolymerizable resin component reduces initial hardening time substantially. This cement is good for usage with restorations that have margins where crevicular fluids, salivary flow, or tongue control can present clinical challenges to the dentist in maintaining a dry field and one of the best used material in paediatric dental practice.. This hands- on course focuses on teaching the mixing of resin modified glass ionomer cement and its application in restoration of class I cavity.

PAP Staining

Exfoliative cytology is an adjunct for diagnosis for potentially malignant disorders. The smears or fine needle aspiration material is appropriately stained for visualizing the nuclear and cytoplasmic changes. The most routinely used stain is the Papanicolaou stain (also Papanicolaou's stain and Pap stain) Pap staining is used to differentiate cells in smear preparations of various bodily secretions; the specimens can be gynaecological smears (Pap smears), sputum, brushings, washings, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, abdominal fluid, pleural fluid, synovial fluid, seminal fluid, fine needle aspiration material, tumour touch samples, or other materials containing cells. Pap staining is a very reliable technique. This workshop introduces the participant the principle, procedure and visualization of the PAP stained smear.

Capsule Workshop 6

“Band” with the Best

How to fabricate a custom band

Banding a tooth is a means of attaching components onto the tooth. Banding is a routine fixed orthodontic procedure. It is preferable to band the posterior teeth compared to bonding an attachment. However, the uses of banding are not restricted to fixed appliances alone. Knowledge to fabricate a custom band is indispensable to fabricate a wide variety of fixed space maintainers like the band and loop. It is also helpful to splint a fractured tooth crown. In this hands on workshop, you will learn a systematic method to fabricate a custom band. There will be a live demonstration as well as pre-recorded videos to enable you to understand the procedure better.
