Manchester hypodontia course

Hypodontia is a condition in which the patient is born with an absence of one or more teeth – including permanent teeth. There are several options to treat hypodontia, and patients often require a wide range of treatment, including maintenance of primary teeth to the restoration of multiple edentulous spaces. This may involve partial adhesive bridges, tooth transplantation, and implants. To ensure the best outcome for the patient, a multidisciplinary approach involving the expertise of a number of clinicians is the most important requirement.

On 6 July 2018, Manchester University is hosting ‘Excellence in hypodontia – the orthodontic restorative interface’ at its centre for professional development – Mandec venue. This event will examine the topic through a series of lectures and table-top treatment planning discussions centred on the multi- disciplinary management of complex orthodontic-restorative cases. The focus will be on initial planning and presentation of cases; stages of treatment progression; definitive management and outcomes.

Organised by consultant orthodontist, Mariyah Nazir, this event is billed to feature a host of experts in this field, and will benefit dentists, orthodontists, prosthodontists, those interested in oral surgery, and the management of multidisciplinary cases.
