By bringing together experts in the field, the Oral Cancer Research session aims to disseminate knowledge, foster collaboration, and inspire further advancements in the quest to better understand, diagnose, and treat oral cancer. Ultimately, the goal is to contribute to improved patient outcomes and a reduction in the global burden of oral cancer.

Craniofacial Imaging Techniques

Craniofacial imaging techniques encompass a range of diagnostic methods used to visualize and assess the structures of the skull and face. These advanced imaging technologies include traditional X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and three-dimensional (3D) imaging. These techniques play a crucial role in diagnosing and planning treatment for various craniofacial conditions, such as fractures, developmental anomalies, and tumors. The non-invasive nature of these imaging modalities allows for detailed and accurate assessments, enabling healthcare professionals to make informed decisions about patient care, surgical interventions, and treatment strategies in the field of craniofacial medicine.

Regenerative Dentistry and Pediatric Dentistry

Regenerative Dentistry: Regenerative Dentistry is a field focused on harnessing the body's natural healing abilities to restore and regenerate damaged or lost dental and craniofacial tissues. This innovative approach involves utilizing techniques such as stem cell therapy, tissue engineering, and the application of biomaterials to encourage the regeneration of teeth, bone, and soft tissues. The goal is to develop effective regenerative solutions that promote optimal oral health outcomes, revolutionizing traditional dental treatments.

Pediatric Dentistry: Pediatric Dentistry specializes in the oral health of children from infancy through adolescence. This branch of dentistry focuses on preventive care, early intervention, and education to ensure the development of healthy oral habits from a young age. Pediatric dentists address a range of issues, including teething problems, cavity prevention, and orthodontic considerations. Creating a positive and comfortable dental experience for children is central to pediatric dentistry, fostering a foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Advances

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) Advances is a scientific session dedicated to exploring the latest developments and innovations in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. This specialized area of dentistry focuses on surgical procedures involving the oral cavity, jaws, face, and related structures. The session aims to provide a platform for researchers, practitioners, and experts to share insights into advancements that are shaping the landscape of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Key topics include:

  • Surgical Techniques
