Meet NIOM scientist Aida Mulic and CEO Professor Jon E. Dahl at CED-IADR in Madrid this week.
NIOM scientist Aida Mulic is among the lecturers behind the symposium “Dental erosion – the new toothache” held at Tapices 1, from 16.00 to 18.00, on Thursday September 19.
Tooth wear is the results of interacting processes: abrasion, attrition, erosion, and possibly abfraction.
– Erosive tooth wear is a multifactorial condition of growing concern. The prevalence is high, particularly among children and adolescents, Mulic explains.
With fellow speakers Viivi Alaraudanjoki, Oulu, Finland, Ulla Pallesen, Copenhagen, Denmark and Torgils Lægreid Bergen, Norway, Mulic will delve into the latest research.
The latest updates
– We will speak concisely and in depth about the diagnosis, prevalence and diagnostic tools. As well as the complex interplay between chemical, mechanical and biological factors behind the condition, Mulic says.
The symposium comes full circle with Pallesen and Lægreids lecture about non-invasive restorative treatments of worn teeth.
– The lecture will be based on clinical cases supported by scientific literature. A discussion of what can be expected concerning longevity of treatments will be given, as well as a recommendation of measures to optimize the longevity, Mulic says.
The symposium is sponsored by NOF and NIOM. It is chaired by NIOM director, Professor Jon E. Dahl and Professor Peter Holbrook, Reykjavik, Iceland. There will be time for questions after the symposium.
