Fibrosis and Dentistry
Welcome to our comprehensive course on Fibrosis, designed for dental professionals seeking an in-depth understanding of this significant condition in dentistry.
The course starts with an overview of fibrosis, focusing on its pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management in dental practice. We look into the diagnosis and management of various fibrotic conditions within the oral cavity, such as oral submucous fibrosis and gingival fibromatosis. Emphasis is placed on recognising these conditions early and managing them effectively.
The course also explores the broader implications of fibrosis in dentistry, including its role in dental pulp fibrosis, and finishes with a broad look at the systemic forms of fibrosis.
To provide an in-depth understanding of the role and implications of fibrosis in various dental contexts, emphasising its pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management in dental practice.
- To explore the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying fibrosis in dental tissues and its clinical implications.
- To examine the diagnosis, management, and preventive strategies for fibrosis-related dental conditions.
