Hypodontia Study Day 2017

The Kings Hypodontia study day is being held on the 19th of April at Kings College Hospital. This course is aimed at trainees and specialty grades but is likely to provide some useful information to consultants involved in the management of the condition that may be looking at updating the evidence base for decision making. 

Important issues such as definitions and aetiology and the need for joint planning will be presented followed by management of the mixed dentition and orthodontic considerations. Towards the end of the day techniques in adhesive dentistry such as the utilisation of composite and resin bonded bridges will be described. The last presentation will review the need for implants and considerations when providing these. 

Information on registering and attendance will be provided on the below link.
