Title: Oral health status, knowledge and behaviors of Dai and Bulang ethnic minority groups in Yunnan Province, China

Abstract: China is a big country with many ethnic groups. Han is the main ethnic group. Most of minority groups live in the inland provinces of China. These inland provinces are less developed and consist of mostly rural areas.  Access to dental health services is limited in these rural areas. Oral health is an important and an integral part of general health. Epidemiological data related to dental health for these minority groups of people are few; but they are essential for planning and implementation of dental programmes for improvement of oral health. An oral health survey will be conducted to study the oral health status and the factors affecting oral health of the children in Yunnan Province, China. The children’s parents oral health attitude, knowledge and behavior of Dai and Bulang ethnic minority will also be investigated. A qualitative study by interview will be carried out to investigate the oral health-related behavior and cultural factors of the elderly of these two ethnic groups.

 

Presenter: Dr. A.W.Y. Wong, PhD Candidate (1:15 to 1:45)

Title: Single-visit versus multiple-visit endodontic therapy – a multi-center clinical trial

Abstract: This prospective clinical trial aims to compare the outcome of endodontic treatment with single-visit or multiple-visit endodontic therapy. The specific objectives are firstly, to study the clinical success in single-visit and multiple-visit endodontic therapy; secondly to compare the time used in single-visit and multiple-visit endodontic therapy with or without magnifying loupes; and thirdly to compare the time used in single-visit and multiple-visit endodontic therapy with core-carrier obturation technique and cold lateral condensation technique. Despite clinical case reports were published on the success of single appointment root canal therapy, surveys found many dentists still perform endodontic treatment in a conventional way i.e. multiple-visit treatment. In this study, only teeth in need of primary endodontic treatment are recruited. They will be randomly assigned into single-visit or multiple-visit treatment. The parameter of patient factors including age, sex and teeth factors including vitality status, tooth canal type, occlusion status, presence of pre-operative pain and apical periodontitis status are recorded. The post-operative parameters including post-operative pain, clinical and radiographic findings will be evaluation up to a period of 2 years. The significance of this clinical trial would provide evidence for dentists to select a better protocol on endodontic therapy.
