Royal Australasian College of Surgeons
250 - 290 Spring Street, East Melbourne
6 Hours Scientific CPD
Lecture and Hands on Workshop
Presenter: Dr Mala Desai
Registration Limit:
Management of the pulpally involved or severely broken down primary tooth and adequate restoration poses considerable
challenges for clinicians involved in the care of the child patient. The use of prefabricated crowns provides the optimal and
most successful form of restoration from compromised teeth, whether resulting from caries and pulpal breakdown, or relating to developmental defects of tooth structure. Stainless steel crowns are an excellent restorative treatment option in the primary dentition as a means of maintaining the space for the permanent successor. The placement of stainless steel crowns in
primary teeth minimises retreatment by providing restorations of high quality that will function until the natural exfoliation of
the tooth.
Stainless steel crowns may be indicated as an interim restorative treatment option in permanent molars where there has
been significant breakdown of the crown and pulpal sensitivity e.g. hypoplastic first permanent molars. The procedure is
more complex than for primary crowns but the results are
again reliable and predictable.
Case selection through appropriate diagnosis is essential to
the long term success of the procedures. In this practical and
informative program, participants will be exposed to a background on the types of stainless steel crowns as well as indications and clinical techniques for the placement of stainless
steel crowns. Hands on experience in restorative techniques
involving placement of stainless steel crowns on replica teeth
will be a key component in the course.
At the conclusion of this workshop participants should be
familiar with:
appropriate diagnosis
correct placement of stainless steel crowns
predictable restorative options
