Scientific Program

Day 1 :


Eduardo Alvares Dainesi has completed his PhD in orthodontics at the age of 34 years, in 1998 at the University of São Paulo - Brazil (USP – Bauru) and also his postdoctoral degree in orthodontics at the same University in 2001. Since then, he has coordinated postgraduate courses such as specialization and master's degree in orthodontics, in addition to working in private practice. Currently he is the scientific director of E. Orto – Post-graduation School in Dentistry in the city of Bauru (São Paulo - Brazil). He has published several papers in reputed journals, and has been a scientific reviewer of some journals, as well.



Self-ligating brackets are ligature less bracket systems that have a mechanical device into the bracket to close off the edgewise slot. These brackets can be classified as passive, interactive or active, according to the locking systems and to the relation they present with the arch wires inserted in their slots.   One can say that one of the greatest benefits in the use of these brackets is the reduction of friction between slot and arch wire, thus allowing a faster tooth movement, especially when using sliding mechanics.  This is partially true since the friction reduction does not depend only on the bracket and wire connection system. In order to effectively reduce friction, it is necessary to use thermodynamic wires, especially those with ionic surface treatment.  In addition, in order to have greater control of the dental position, especially during the alignment and leveling of the dental arches, it is necessary to use stops.   Reduced friction in performing induced tooth movement means that more biologically compatible forces may be applied during orthodontic movement. This means working with lower levels of forces, allowing a better control of the mechanics, especially of anchorage and reducing the probability of biological costs, as root resorptions.  Thus, the OPB has the purpose to allow a fast service, reducing the time of chair (by using self-ligating brackets); A reduction of the orthodontic biological cost, greater biomechanical comfort during the treatment and greater time for the detailing and refinement of the occlusion (through the application of a logical sequence of thermodynamic arch wires and strategically positioned stops); Culminating in patient satisfaction and well-being.   Thus, some clinical tips will be presented to show the simplicity of the OPB.

Nilamber Pitamber University, India

Keynote: Platelet Rich Fibrin: An Adjunct in Wound Healing

Time : 10:00 am - 10:30 am


Dr. Tanya is MDS in Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics. She is presently working as an assistant Professor in Vananchal Dental College and Hospital. She has done her PG Diploma in Clinical Cosmetology and Medical Trichology from university of Greifswald, Germany. She is a very proficient clinician and academician. Apart from this, she is a leading anchor and has been awarded several times for her exceptional presentation skills. She has been elected as the secretary of Junior Doctors Association in her University. Being a curious Endodontist and always driven to learn, she is carrying her research work actively and looking forward to contributing her efforts in the world of dentistry and medicine.



Statement   of   the Problem:   In   the world   of   synthetic products, the evolution of a natural healing agent that is obtained from the shelf is a ray of hope for all researchers. Platelet Rich Fibrin is the activated form of plasmatic molecule called fibrinogen which plays a determining role in platelet aggregation during hemostasis.  It works as a protective wall along vascular breaches. Various studies have proved that it is vigorously used in bone grafts, Endo Perio lesions, gingival recession, necrotic Pulp and open apex.  The purpose of this study is to review and discuss the role of platelet rich fibrin in regenerative pulpotomy. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation:  A 14-year-old boy with acute pain in 37 visited Endodontic department. On    radiographic    analysis, radiolucency    was    seen approaching pulp horn and the tooth had open apex. Coronal pulp was removed and pulpotomy was performed with the help of Platelet Rich Fibrin MTA and GIC. His 10 ml blood was withdrawn and centrifuged at 3000 rpm for 10 min. Three layers were formed after centrifugation, 2nd layer was separated and right after cleaning the tooth PRF was infused in coronal pulp. Later tooth was restored with MTA and GIC. Patient was followed up after 1,7,21 days. There were no signs of pain after 7 days.


Conclusion & Significance:  After 6 months tooth was completely   developed into a healthy form.  Platelet Rich Fibrin   has a tendency of slow polymerization, forms 3D network forming a matrix aiding in cytokine retention for extended periods, forms a membrane that possess elasticity and flexibility.  These properties make it superior than other healing materials and can be used in several ways as endodontic wound healing aid.
