NJAPD Annual Fall 2018 Meeting

All Day Event

The New Jersey Academy of Pediatric Dentistry presents their Annual Fall Meeting on Halloween in South Iselin, New Jersey.

Course Title
New studies on the long-term fate of traumatized primary teeth and consequences for permanent successors, and new knowledge about pulp healing events in traumatized permanent teeth.

Dr. Jens Ove Andreasen (Copenhagen, Denmark), DDS, Odont. Dr.H.C.

Dr. Andreasen received his dental degree from the Royal Dental College, Copenhagen, in 1959. He did his postgraduate training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University Hospital in Copenhagen, where he now is an associate Professor.

Dr. Andreasen has authored 400 publications and 12 textbooks, covering topics such as dental traumatology, tooth replantation and autotransplantation, tooth eruption and tooth impaction. In relation to traumatology the Textbook and Color Atlas of Dental Traumatology is now in its 5th edition and include 62 contributors. He founded the interactive Dental Trauma Guide in 2008 which is now being used in 180 countries. It contains information of a series of prospective long term studies of all types of traumatic dental injuries carried out at the trauma center and Department of Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery as well as information from 50 animal experiments reproducing treatment scenarios of various dental traumas affecting primary as well as permanent teeth.

Dr. Andreasen has received four honorary doctorate degrees and has been an invited lecturer in 49 countries.

1. Primary tooth traumatic injuries. New knowledge about healing events and healing complications. A survey of 6 fracture types and 6 luxation types.
2. Transferred damage to permanent successors. How big is the risk and can this be predicted knowing the type of trauma and age of the patient?
3. How sensitive to trauma are the various cell components in the developing tooth germ? Can they regenerate after trauma and what happens if this is not the case?
4. Pulpal healing after luxation of permanent teeth is very complex and has been analyzed experimentally and clinically at the Dental Trauma Clinic in Copenhagen, Denmark for more than 50 years. This lecture will demonstrate these varieties of pulpal healing and the long-term risks related to each injury type.

Learning objectives
1. What are the possible healing events after trauma in the primary dentition and can they be predicted?
2. How sensitive are the permanent successors to traumas in the primary dentition?
3. Which parts of the developing tooth germ can regenerate after trauma?
4. If pulpal healing takes place after trauma in the permanent dentition, what types of tissue will then be found in the pulpal chamber? Are these healing types stable over time?
