Manav Rachna Dental College proudly announced APEX 2010 - Live Dental Symposium on Endodontics today at MRIU campus, Faridabad. BRIG Dr. Anil Kohli Padm Bhushan, Padamshree, Ex President, Dental Council of India was the Chief Guest for the event. The conference aimed at increasing general awareness, popularizes the utility and advantages of modern Endodontics amongst the masses and updates them on the contemporary trends in Dentistry. It was followed by a hand on experience session on Endodontics.

While highlighting the need for such symposiums speaking at the conference, Dr. Anil Kohli, eminent Endodontist said, “Both the private and public sector Endodontists are challenged to meet the needs of an ever-growing number of Indian populations who cannot regularly access oral health care,”. “Endodontic measures provide important foundations for long-term and lasting tooth retention. In light of an aging society, this dental discipline is becoming increasingly important. With evidence-based success rates of up to 85 per cent for treatments performed legeartis, Endodontics have long been an established fixture in the range of therapies offered by general dentists, while at the same time offering a rich field of work for specialists,” he further added.

Keeping in mind the inherent advantages associated with Endodontic treatment, Manav Rachna International University’s Dental College took this initiative to generate awareness about Endodontics and its advantages through a lecture series followed by live surgical demonstrations to the final year students and budding post graduate students. The sessions also showcased the technically improved availability of instruments available at Manav Rachna Dental College.

“Endodontics is one of the most exciting dental specialties in today’s time and deals with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Endodontists perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, Endodontics treatment, surgery, treating dental trauma”, said Dr Pankaj Dhawan, Conference Organizing Secretary.

Primarily, it is essential to the health of your mouth, which can assist you in evading excruciating infections. Too many cavities can be hazardous, and those cavities that transform into boil can lead to even worse troubles such as root canals or teeth extraction. Secondly, good dental hygiene leads to enhanced breath and whiter teeth, makes one feel healthier.

Speaking at the conference, Dr. Neetu Pulwani, Oral Radiologist Mahajan Imaging Centre said, “Surgery may be used in diagnosis, if one has persistent symptoms but no problems appear on their x-ray, their tooth might have a tiny fracture or canal that could not be detected during nonsurgical treatment.”
Dr. Vivek Hedge, Head, Dept of Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics, Rangoonwala Dental College, Pune said, “The latest methods employed in the conservation therapy includes manual or mechanized root canal preparation, efficient rinsing methods during disinfection and modern instruments and materials for obturation. Even the treatment of front teeth with fractured crowns and roots is possible today through the use of advanced root pin systems, among other techniques.” And if a root canal revision should become necessary, the endodontic specialists have a range of minimally invasive microsurgical concepts up to the treatment of complex Endo-periodontal lesions available to them. The impressive scientific and technological progress in the field of Endodontics has improved the odds of long-term tooth retention tremendously and puts this speciality at the centre of a prophylactic-conservationist approach to dentistry.

Appreciating the overwhelming response, queries addressed, quest for knowledge of the students as well the audience, Dr. O.P.Bhalla, Hon'ble Chancellor MRIU, said, “The primary aim of Manav Rachna Dental College is to produce competent dentists, specialists, and super specialists. Manav Rachna Dental College has well-established special clinics in Dental Implant, Advanced Dental Centre and Rural Health Centres. Moreover, many Rural Dental Health Camps and school children Dental Health Camps are routinely undertaken by the College. The ultimate aim behind such initiatives is to bring this Institute at par with the best in the world, so that our trained doctors become the global players of tomorrow.”

Endodontics is one of the most exciting dental specialties of our time and deals with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Endodontists perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, Endodontic retreatment, surgery, treating cracked teeth, and treating dental trauma. Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures. If the pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue) becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth.
