Assoc. Prof. Noemi Rozsa is the director of the Department for Pedodontics and Orthodontics at the Semmelweis University Faculty for Dentistry, Budapest, Hungary. She is a specialist for Pedodontics and Orthodontics, defended her PhD thesis in clinical dentistry in 2009, and works at the department since 1990.She has published more than 20 papers in reputed journals and has been co-author of pedodontic and orthodontic textbooks for dental students in Hungarian and English. She worked as guest researcher at the Asahi University, Japan and is lecturing at the Danube Private University, Krems, Austria.


Solving special clinical situations in young children is allways a problemin pedodontic dentistry. During our day-by-day work at the Department of Pedodontics and Orthodontics of the Semmelweis University Faculty for Dentistry the most critical problems are related to early childhood caries, dental traumatic injuries in both primary and permanent dentition, molar-incisor-hypomineralisation syndrome (MIH), severe cases of hypodontia related to ectodermal dysplasia (ED) and the management of disabled children. The aim of this presentation is to highlight the clinical solutions and preventions methods applied in our department in the above mentioned situations by presenting general treatment protocolls, dental treatment under
general anaesthesia, non-invasive and minimal invasive treatment methods for children with special needs, deveopmental dental anomalies such as MIH syndrome, caries circularis, aesthetical and functional rehablitation of children who suffered traumatic injuries of the primary teeth and prosthetic treatment of young with hypohydrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED). The case presentations of HED patients focus on long term monitorizing and the benefits of early prosthetic treatment on the development of the maxillo-facial structures.

Dr Arup Ratan Choudhury is an exception achiever, specialist dental surgeon, humanist, media compare as well as a noted singer of Bangladesh. Who has devoted his life to the service of mankind, was born in 1952. He has shown a remarkable contribution in management of medically compromised patients and scientific research during the last 25 years. As a scientist-cum singer, Dr Arup Ratan Choudhury splits his time in the USA between studying periodontal disease in Diabetics
and singing the works of famed Bengali author and Nobel poet laureate Rabindranath Tagore during 1992-1993.


By integrating oral health into strategies for promoting general health and by assessing oral needs in socio-dental ways, health planners can greatly enhance both general and oral health.The key concept underlying future oral health strategies is integration with this approach, a major benefit being the focus on improving health conditions in general for the whole population and for groups at high risk, thereby reducing social inequities. Problems in the mouth can signal trouble in other parts of the body. AIDS and osteoporosis are examples. Mouth lesions and other oral conditions may be the first sign of HIV infection, and are used to determine the stage of infection and to follow its progression to AIDS. The human mouth is home to millions of microorganisms, most of them harmless. Under certain conditions, however, some can cause oral infections such as tooth decay or gum disease. Oral bacteria may also enter the bloodstream if normal protective barriers in the mouth
are breached. This can happen as a result of dental treatment or even tooth brushing and flossing. Recent studies point to associations between oral infections – primarily gum infections – and diabetes; heart disease; stroke; and preterm, low-weight births. Research is under way to determine if the associations are causal or coincidental. Gum infections have been called "the sixth complication of diabetes," because people with diabetes are more likely to have periodontal disease. Researchers are exploring a possible two-way connection between the conditions to see if treating gum disease improve diabetic control. Recent studies point to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke in people with gum infections; the risk increases with the severity of the oral infection. Some studies have found that mothers of preterm, low birth weight infants tend to have more severe gum disease than mothers of normal birth weight babies. More research is needed to determine if gum infections do indeed
contribute to babies being born too soon and too small. Among tobacco users, oral cancer is a significant concern. Survival and treatment outcomes depend largely on stage of diagnosis. Early detection has the potential to improve the prognosis and quality of life for those diagnosed with oral cancer. Oral cancer statistics show that less than 40 percent of oral cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage. A number of conditions of the oral mucosa may present as white patches. Although the majority
of white patches are of little significance, certain lesions are associated with pre-malignancy or malignancy. Unfortunately, the presence of any sinister lesion cannot be assesed by clinical appearance alone and definitive diagnosis, involving a biopsy, is mandatory whenever there is uncertainetly about the clinical diagnosis of an oral white patch.

Conference Series Pedodental-2018 International Conference Keynote Speaker Kaushik Prakash photo

Kaushik Prakash is on a mission to serve the community by bringing out the best smiles amongst people with mal-aligned teeth. Trained as an Orthodontist, he has years of work experience in both academic and clinical knowledge in usage of Pre-Adjusted Edgewise Appliance and Lingual Orthodontics and also a certified provider of the Invisalign System of Aligners designed to provide aesthetic orthodontic solutions. He works as an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Dental Sciences, Meenakshi Academy for Higher Education and Research University, Chennai. He has a passion towards treatment modalities in regards to Pre and Post - Surgical Orthodontics for Orthognathic Surgery.


Patients today usually recognize irregular teeth or obvious jaw deformities and seek treatment from orthodontist, who can
improve tooth alignment, function, and facial aesthetics. Dentofacial deformities require both orthodontics and surgery. These deformities affect physical oro-facial function in several ways. Approximately 30% of patients seeking treatment have a vertical increase in the lower third of the face. Because of the excessive vertical growth of the maxilla, the mandible trends to rotate downward and backward. These patients have problems in the anteroposterior plane. Patients with long faces can be described as being class I rotated to class II or as class III rotated to class II. Lip incompetence due to the excessive vertical growth of maxilla results in mouth breathing which eliminates the physiologic effect of the nose on breathing. The combination of surgery and orthodontics makes it possible to treat dentofacial deformities at ease. This paper highlights the importance in diagnosis and treatment planning, which would provide a predictable and stable outcome in vertical malocclusion associated
with skeletal class II and class III patients by orthognathic approach.
