CE Showcase Endodontics Supporting Your Practice

Shimon Friedman Endodontic Symposium: Nanoparticle Guided Endodontics: A major paradigm shift


Dr. Anil Kishen is a speaker at the the inaugural Shimon Friedman Endodontic Symposium & Alumni Weekend to be held on June 7 to 9, 2018. The event is hosted by  the U of T Endodontic Alumni & Friends. Dr. Kishen joined me to give our viewers more information about his session at the symposium. 

Dr. Kishen is  is Professor of Endodontics and Principal Investigator of the Nanoparticle Guided Functional Tissue Engineering Lab at the University of Toronto. He has published over 120 peer-reviewed articles with over 10 invention disclosures to his credit. Dr. Kishen has pioneered novel technologies for endodontic treatments and is a strong advocate for high-quality translational research benefiting patient care.

I hope you enjoy the conversation and attend the symposium, if you can. As always, we welcome your feedback, questions, and suggestions at oasisdiscussions@cda-adc.ca or you can call our toll-free number is 1-855-716-2747.

Until next time!

Endodontic technologies and biomaterials have witnessed significant advances in the last decade. In spite of these advances, some of the integral limitations in endodontic treatment still persist. Development of minimally invasive techniques that predictably disinfect the infected teeth, reverse disease mediated changes in dentin, improve mechanical characteristics of dentin and promote biologically based treatment will have the potential to shift the current paradigm in endodontic therapy. Bioactive nanoparticles have received significant interest in biomedicine and health care in the recent times. This lecture will cover the application of multifunctional nanoparticles for functional tissue engineering on teeth with apical periodontitis.
