Measuring risk for oral cancer
Presented by Prof Michael McCullough
This talk will outline presenting features and diagnosis of oral squamous cell carcinoma and potentially malignant oral mucosal changes. The changing aetiology of oral cancer, clinical tools that may aid in the early recognition of these conditions, and recent evidence an aetiological role for both common oral hygiene practices and sexually transmitted diseases will be discussed.
• Enhanced appreciation of the clinical appearance of oral mucosal disease, potentially malignant diseases, and oral cancer
• Have a greater appreciation of the changing aetiology of oral cancer
• Increased understanding of the role of clinical tools in the recognition and diagnosis of mucosal disease
The future for periodontal regenerations
Presented by Prof Saso Ivanovski
A critical requirement for periodontal regeneration is the ability to promote the formation of functional periodontal attachment between regenerated alveolar bone and newly formed cementum on the root surface. This lecture will address the current status of periodontal regeneration clinical procedures, as well advances in tissue engineered approaches capable of recapitulating the complex wound healing events that will lead to predictable periodontal regeneration.
• Describe the clinical and biological requirements for achieving periodontal regeneration
• Recognize the limitations of currently available periodontal regeneration techniques
• Define the term Tissue Engineering
• Recognize how tissue engineering strategies can lead to enhanced periodontal regeneration outcomes
