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.

Hypodontia is ideally treated in a multidisciplinary setting- A case report

The purpose of this article is to describe a team approach to treatment of hypodontia in adolescent dentition. A case report of hypodontia with a microdontic lateral incisor in a Class I malocclusion illustrates the principles of case management. Multidisciplinary consultation during treatment planning and coordination and appropriate timing of subsequent interdisciplinary dental care enables the clinician to provide the optimum care. The scope of orthodontic and restorative management depends on the severity of the hypodontia.
