Participation of Prof. Dr. Faisal Dayoub, Prof. Dr. Aws Dannan and Prof. Dr. Ahmad Al Hallak in the 18th International Conference
the Syrian PrivateUniversity in the 18th International Conference through several valuable scientific lectures delivered by a group of educational staff of the faculty of dentistry
Prof. Dr. Faisal Dayoub delivered a key lecture entitled: “dental treatment between the past and present” covered a historical narrative of dental treatment in the far past until modern technologic flourishing. The scientific development of the basic sciences opened wide horizons to benefit from this development and its applications in medicine and dentistry in particular.
Hermann introduced calcium hydrate as an example for the development which we benefit from its clinical and laboratory products. Johnson introduced too profile instrument system in 1944 expressed by its more than 40 rotary systems. Nygrad Ostby’s findings and introducing EDTA are unforgettable. LASER invention in dental treatment are uncountable. Doubtlessly , more than 95% of dental and oral disease stems from dental pulp and deep complication in dental surrounding tissues and maxillofacial area which made the founder of dental treatment J V Blackto write in the introduction of his book on dental pulp: “This little tissue has created a big issue” meant by that the dental pulp. In this lecture we will compare the development of dentistry and the role our Arab ancestors theoretical and practical contributions in this field until present.
Prof. Dr. Aws Dannan delivered a lecture entitled: “chronic and invasiveinflammations of dental surrounding tissues between general practitioner and specialist”
Dental surrounding tissues’ inflammation is considered as an inflammatory disease that affects gum, alveolar bone and periodontal ligament. The lecture shed light on how to treat chronic and invasive inflammations of dental surrounding tissues between general practitioner and specialist. In general a general practitioner should have sufficient knowledge on morbid changes of the dental surrounding tissues and instruct the patient to the importance of treating such kind of diseases in the oral cavity. A general practitioner may make introductory preparation for treating gum inflammation such as supragingival calculus removal, as well as giving him the instruction for oral health. Nevertheless, in moderate and severe dental cases, the general practitioner may refer patient suffered from dental surrounding tissues’ inflammation to a specialist for adequate conservative or surgical treatment.
Prof. Dr. Ahmad Al Hallak delivered a key lecture on "Is Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT" in managing buried molars luxury or necessity?” included some modern researches on CBCT which revealed an increase in the percent of bury of all teeth. He highlighted the contribution of the Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT in giving the accurate diagnostic for the position, axes and the form of the buried molars and propose the most adequate treatment plan either for preserving the tooth, inspect it, draw it orthodontically, or extract it surgically with minimum contusion and complication through showing representative scientific and clinical cases.
As coordinator of the sidelines one-day scientific course, Prof. Dr. Ahmad Al Hallak included some lectures on the essentials and principles of the Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT and its applications in all dentistry domains, in addition to a workshop on the use of some relevant software. Prof. Dr. Al Hallak delivered the following three lectures:
CBCT, principles, needs and, facts.
Major tasks and cross sections in different CBCTsoftware.
Applying CBCT in surgery and dental implants.
