1. Know When to Hold ‘Em and Know When to Fold ‘Em              
 

The transformation of the pediatric patient’s dentition and oral structures through the primary, mixed and early permanent dentition may result in various problematic presentations. Identification and timely intervention will assure not only the child’s developmental well-being, but may also minimize future treatment costs. This course begins with recommendations for the performance of a thorough examination that includes anomalies, pathology and various soft tissue presentations. Specific treatment recommendations for eruption disturbances, mandibular incisor crowding, space maintainers, upper airway obstruction, parafunctional habits and pros and cons for third molar extractions will complete this half day course. Dentists, assistants and hygienists will derive strongly enhanced diagnostic and treatment skills for their youngest patients.
 

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Appreciate the ease and value of a thorough pediatric examination
  • Determine appropriate timing and intervention for common eruption disturbances
  • Learn management of parafunctional habits and appropriate use of space maintainers
  • Identify upper airway obstruction for appropriate intervention/referral
  • Better evaluate the need for third molar extractions
